What is secure cloud storage
for law firms?
You already know what a cloud is. A secure cloud is just like the mainstream cloud. The difference is that it was built to help you handle confidential data without having to worry about compliance or cyber threats. The necessary cybersecurity measures are built in, so your firm’s data always stays private and protected from malware, loss, or accidental exposure.
Reduce legal costs
The legal industry still uses copious amounts of paper. Nevertheless, some law firms have embraced digital technologies and as a result, have reduced their costs significantly. In a secure cloud, your work is more efficient and secure with fewer resources.
Secure your communications
End-to-end encryption ensures your communications with coworkers and clients stay confidential at all times. Data ownership stays with you. In other words, you decide who and when to share your data.
When efficiency is of the essence, there’s nothing better than the cloud. You can sync files across your devices and reach them wherever you are. With the proper tools, you make sure that efficiency doesn’t compromise your data security.
Protect the integrity of your institution
Cybercriminals often cast their nets blindly. That’s why any law firm can become a target of phishing or ransomware. Take a step towards better security and prevent any financial or reputational damage an attack on your firm could impose.
Ensure compliance with privacy laws
Nobody understands the importance of compliance better than the legal professionals. But whether it’s GDPR or something that applies to a single state, legislation often focuses on data security. When you ensure that all your data is end-to-end encrypted, compliance with privacy laws becomes much easier.
Help your clients understand confidentiality
Clients can sometimes reveal sensitive information without realizing what they've done and complicate the jobs of their attorneys. By sharing documents via a secure cloud, you help your clients understand the importance of privacy and confidentiality.
Why legal firms should embrace
In the legal industry, you make sure that what you can’t say isn’t made public. But keeping information confidential can be difficult since the industry is among the top 10 ransomware targets. What would you do if you were held hostage for your data? Reduce risks to your business – work in a secure cloud where your data is backed up and protected from cyber threats.
Control access to your resources
Over 80% of the legal industry professionals handle confidential data at work. How can a law firm ensure security and privacy standards are upheld without compromise? End-to-end encryption can give a significant boost to your cybersecurity, help control access to files, and save costs.
Improve compliance standards
Privacy laws may change in the future, but one thing is clear: companies are responsible for protecting customer data. Since 51% of legal professionals haven’t had proper cybersecurity training, you must ensure that security measures are built into the daily processes.
Protect data from ransomware
About 11% of legal professionals don’t use any cybersecurity tools. This is a concern because of the growing number of cyber incidents around the world. A secure cloud is the easiest way to boost your cybersecurity standards, back up data, and prevent it from unwanted exposure without making digital security a burden to everyone in your firm.

your business stay secure.
Law firms, partners, and associates deal with confidential data on a daily basis. That’s why the cloud they use to store and share files should be secure and privacy focused. Only after you can guarantee confidentiality should you compare features and prices.
If you don’t need to share the documents, a physical safe could be a good option. But the best way to store documents today is a secure cloud because it backs up and syncs your data while ensuring its security.
When you send legal documents through mail, there’s always a chance they can be read by someone they shouldn’t be. If you can, always use an end-to-end encrypted cloud to share documents. This way, you can ensure that only the intended target can open and read the documents you sent.
A cloud-based document management system (DMS) is a company’s way to manage its documents. Usually, DMS covers file access, storage, and backup policies. Some companies, especially law firms, should also clearly define how files are shared.
