David Fazakerley, Chief Information Officer of high-growth regional high street firm MW Solicitors, explains why CTS was by far the best bet when it came to better preparing the firm for the worst.
As business growth goes, MW Solicitors has certainly had a pretty fair share. When Chief Information Officer, David Fazakerley, arrived less than five years ago, the business he took on had 10 offices and 160 staff. Today, it has nearly tripled that – 28 offices, with a proportionate increase in revenue to £30m.
But that pace of expansion also needs to be matched by the right investment in operational improvement and risk management.
CTS’ advanced approach to Managed Detection and Response (MDR) reduces the vital response time to hours and minutes, distilling complex issues into practical, actionable advice so threats can be remediated more quickly.
“You need to be back in business not in weeks or days, but within hours and minutes – and with CTS providing our business continuity and disaster recovery, that’s what we have at MW Solicitors” says Fazakerley.
