Oyster IMS Granted LOCS:23 Consultancy Approval to Bolster GDPR Compliance for Legal Firms

Oyster IMS is pleased to announce its recent accreditation as a Qualified Consultancy for the implementation of the LOCS:23 standard, showcasing its deep understanding of data protection regulations.

The Legal Services Operational Privacy Certification Scheme (LOCS:23), endorsed by the ICO, represents the definitive certification mechanism for legal service providers to demonstrate compliance with UK GDPR mandates.

The attainment of LOCS:23 certification offers law firms and legal chambers significant benefits, including immunity from ICO sanctions and penalties, an enhanced competitive stance to secure additional business, minimisation of data breaches and their ensuing costs, validation of globally recognized compliance, and the facilitation of procurement procedures.

Oyster IMS is proud to feature two team members who have achieved Approved Implementor status, ready to support our clients in their journey to attain LOCS:23 certification for their legal practices.

Being one of the select LOCS:23 approved consultancies, Oyster IMS’s endorsement is a reflection of our profound expertise and our dedication to the highest standards of data protection and privacy. Josef Elliott, Managing Director at Oyster IMS, commented on this achievement, saying, “We are thrilled to have secured this important accreditation. This is a testament to our expertise, the quality of our services, and our team’s commitment to delivering outstanding results for our clients. It is wonderful to be leading the charge with this certification which will become an important credential for all UK law firms.”

Tim Hyman, the creator of the LOCS:23 scheme, added, “We are keen to maintain the integrity of the LOCS standard and it’s very encouraging to have Oyster IMS on board as qualified consultants. As the world’s first Supervisory Authority approved GDPR certification for legal services, LOCS:23 will be the official benchmark to measure and ensure GDPR compliance. I have known Josef and the team for many years and they have the expertise, experience, and capabilities to support their clients through certification and beyond.”
