Here’s a link to the new standard and information about how it differs from the current version: https://www.lawsociety.org.uk/support-services/accreditation/lexcel/lexcel-v6-1-and-v5-1/.
All Lexcel assessments (full and AMVs) will be against this new Standard. Start implementing measures to meet new elements of the Standard now, to allow time for them to bed in effectively before your next visit – policies and documentation should be in place for at least three months before an assessment.
Delegates will also be provided with detail about next steps for Cyber Essentials accreditation (which is linked to the new version of the Lexcel standard but not mandatory) should they wish to pursue this line of accreditation.
Recognising Excellence is currently working in Partnership with an approved Cyber Essentials accreditation company ATG-IT to help you plan and implement all your cyber security needs. The main contact there is Steve McGowan and he can be contacted on email@example.com or 01527 570535.
In the meantime, if you need any support with Cyber Essentials accreditation, I will be happy to help (firstname.lastname@example.org).
