Oyster IMS Secures Position as LOCS:23 Certified Consultancy for Legal Firms’ GDPR Needs

Oyster IMS is proud to announce its certification as a Qualified Consultancy to facilitate the LOCS:23 standard, demonstrating its expertise in data protection regulations.

The Legal Services Operational Privacy Certification Scheme (LOCS:23), established by the ICO, is the definitive certification for legal service providers, enabling them to showcase their compliance with UK GDPR principles.

Securing the LOCS:23 certification brings a myriad of advantages to law firms and legal chambers, such as safeguarding from ICO penalties, gaining a competitive edge in the marketplace, reducing the incidence and cost of data breaches, affirming compliance to a recognized standard, and easing the procurement process.

Oyster IMS is delighted to have two of its team members distinguished as Approved Implementors, offering specialized support to clients aiming for LOCS:23 certification for their legal practices.

As one of the exclusive LOCS:23 approved consultancies, Oyster IMS’s recognition reflects its profound competence and dedication to maintaining the highest standards in data protection and privacy. Josef Elliott, Managing Director at Oyster IMS, shared his thoughts on this achievement, “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, Scheme Owner of LOCS:23, shared his perspective, “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.”
