Dig into a law firm, and you’ll find secrets. Sometimes these secrets are mundane, like who’s getting divorced, or who’s getting cut out of the will. Sometimes, however, these secrets can shake nations and economies.
It’s no mystery that companies and individuals are hacked every day and information is compromised. Criminals use this information in many ways and one of them is to profit from it in the global markets violating insider trading laws.
It’s no secret that law firms hold a massive amount of confidential client data. And with the dramatic growth and usage of cloud computing, the need to secure the transmission and sharing of this data is becoming more important than ever.
All companies have a responsibility to secure client documents, but the legal professional has an extended ethical obligation. Your legal professional has some of your most personal and business information and they must be diligent with security and securing legal documents.
