How Does an Outsourced IT Company Ensure Client Confidentiality for Law Firms?

Law Firm Computer SupportWhen law firms choose to outsource their IT services and support, it’s much easier for attorneys to focus on their core competencies. In fact, integrating outsourced IT services can help attorneys handle and protect the overwhelming amount of data created and used.

Most law firms are beginning to realize the importance of strong data security standards. As an attorney, you have a legal and ethical obligation to maintain client confidentiality. Often, weak security standards lead to data loss and theft, which results in significant financial penalties and reputation damage.

While most law firms store and send confidential client information electronically, many law firms fail to carry out proper safeguards to protect that information. If you’re worried about the confidentiality of your clients’ information, an outsourced IT company can help you make sure client confidentiality using the following IT services:

1.     Data and Email Encryption

An outsourced IT company can offer data and email encryption solutions to make sure sensitive information remains confidential and secure. Encryption should be used to protect data at rest, such as data stored on laptops and PCs, as well as data in motion, such as data transferred over the Internet via email.

2.     Data Backup

Law firms typically keep client files for a variety of reasons, some of which benefit the client, while others benefit the law firm. If you don’t have a backup solution in place, system failure, natural disaster, or human error can result in permanent data loss. An outsourced IT company can offer a data backup solution to make sure data is backed up and recoverable in the event of data loss.

3.     Network Security

An outsourced IT company can assess your network to reveal and address any existing security threats or vulnerabilities. In addition, an outsourced IT company can offer 24/7 monitoring to make sure security threats and vulnerabilities are handled immediately.
