Update: Our Business Operations

June 23rd, 2020 Posted by Uncategorised 0 comments on “Update: Our Business Operations”

We regularly review our remote working business plan to ensure we continue to operate effectively throughout this pandemic. Every member of our broking and claims team has worked tirelessly to ensure our service proposition during lockdown remained seamless and we shall continue to work remotely following advice and official guidelines from The Government.  We are planning the return to our office premises as and when The Government guidance allows us to do so and currently carrying out specific Covid-19 risk assessments and taking all necessary steps to ensure the safe return of our team.

Like all businesses, we are working on a practical framework to consider new ways of operating, complimenting and improving the service proposition we provide to our clients. In the meantime, contact numbers and email addresses remain unchanged, so you don’t have to do anything differently to get in touch. Some phones however may be diverted to mobiles. We continue to facilitate client and new customer meetings using Zoom video conferencing and to ease the strain on our remote telephony capability we ask that you communicate with us by email, wherever possible. Your business is and will always continue to remain our focus.

Important Notice

March 19th, 2020 Posted by Uncategorised 0 comments on “Important Notice”

Hamilton Leigh has activated our remote working business plan to ensure we can continue to operate effectively should a number of our employees become ill, or are required to self-isolate due to the virus.

This is a unique situation which is continually changing. We are taking all pragmatic and sensible steps to ensure that we’re well prepared and well positioned to minimise the potential impact on the welfare of our people, while continuing to deliver on our service commitments to our clients.

Our operational resilience

We have put contingency plans in place to deal with potential disruption as a result of the coronavirus outbreak and we have implemented the necessary steps to maintain good customer service throughout this period. Specifically:

  • We have been liaising with all insurance companies around their operational resilience and business continuity to ensure we are prepared for any future changes in guidance and we remain in constant dialogue regarding plans.
  •  Our claims service remains our service priority to our clients and ensuring this continues to be well managed.
  • We have introduced measures to enable secure remote access to our IT systems so our people can work from home.
  •  In the event that the UK Government enforces office closures, we will be ready to respond in a manner which will not significantly disrupt our ability to continue to service our clients.

Our people

The health, safety and welfare of our people and our clients remain our priority. We continue to review and respond to the current advice and official guidelines from the UK government and health organisations. Specifically:

We are encouraging all people to follow the NHS general good practice guidance to prevent the spread of virus.

We have postponed all business travel and client facing meetings until further notice. We have introduced the use of Zoom video-conferencing instead.
We are also promoting digital forms of communication to ease the strain on our telephony capability and ensure that we can continue to service our clients effectively. Please wherever possible contact us using email.

Cyber Risks and Liabilities Newsletter January/February 2019

February 11th, 2019 Posted by Uncategorised 0 comments on “Cyber Risks and Liabilities Newsletter January/February 2019”

Time is limited for the UK and the EU to craft a proper withdrawal agreement before Brexit takes place on 29th March 2019, leaving room for a range of possible outcomes. Despite the uncertainty, however, it’s crucial for your business to be prepared for anything—especially in the realm of data and technology. No-deal or not, ensure your organisation remains successful and compliant during the Brexit process.

  • Transferring data—Regardless of Brexit’s impact, the GDPR is here to stay. But in terms of data transfers, it’s important for your organisation to review its current export practices. Businesses that transfer data between the UK and EU should keep in mind that this could be considered an international practice post-Brexit. This means your organisation must comply with the GDPR’s restrictions on international data transfers by creating a contractual clause.
  • Protecting your database—Currently, an EU right known as the Sui Generis right protects all EU databases. In a no-deal, UK businesses established by UK nationals may lose this right. Protect your database in this scenario by including developers with EU connections in your workforce.
  • Securing your supply chain—In the event of a no-deal, any arrangements your business has involving the circulation of technology or hardware with the EU may suffer at the hands of customs delays and potential border regulations. Be sure to revisit your supply chain and develop methods to limit your risk.
  •  Reviewing your workforce—Many UK organisations employ EU nationals within their workforce. This practice could be problematic if a no-deal takes place and changes current immigration requirements. Make sure all EU nationals have applied for ‘settled status’ to ensure they can continue working for your organisation post-Brexit.
  • Updating agreements—Finally, your business should review all contracts and agreements for material technology with Brexit in mind. Pay close attention to elements such as the territorial scope of licences, the location of personal data, rights in databases and currency changes. In addition, ensure ultimate peace of mind during Brexit by securing proper cover, such as trade
    credit insurance. For more information, contact Hamilton Leigh today.
