Technology has enhanced the way law firms function today. You can now use technology to quickly and efficiently obtain information to boost your overall productivity. But when transferring and sharing data, you must ensure security at all times—and do this from wherever you’re working. How can you take advantage of all that technology has to offer while protecting your data?

Cloud technologies have the potential to improve your productivity, efficiency and IT accessibility. In addition, you can depend on our cloud services for data security, document management, and workflow improvement. For example, you probably use a a lot of paper in your day-to-day operations. By embracing cloud computing, you can:
In the past, law firms used paper to keep track of their finances. Today, there are many software packages available for you to use to track each and every transaction. The most obvious benefit of financial management software is budgeting. With financial management software, you have the tools to create and manage a budget effectively.
Short and long-term planning is another benefit of using financial management software. Unfortunately, many people don’t think about the future, even when considering the financial goals they’d like to reach. Most financial management software includes planning tools that allow you to evaluate your current funds and align them with your future goals.
Case management software brings your desktop calendar, contacts, filing system, and task systems together in one package. Your firm can benefit from case management software in many ways—for organizing, managing deadlines, storing client information and coordinating communications. In addition, case management software provides you the information you need to effectively manage your practice, and feedback on how you’re progressing in all aspects of your business.
You and your staff must use encryption to protect your confidential data, and encrypt both emails and data to ensure security of this information. It should be used to protect data at rest, such as on laptops or portable servers, as well as data in motion, such as over wireless networks or the Internet.
While computer systems can easily be replaced, the intellectual property and sensitive information stored on those systems cannot. Computer hard drives can fail, laptops can be stolen or lost, and data can be erased due to human error or viruses. It’s important for your firm to have a managed and monitored data backup solution to keep data safe and avoid data loss. It is equally important to maintain secure, off-site copies of your data to mitigate data loss due to natural disasters, fire or flood damage, and other potential risks. This ensures your business operations can continue in the event of a catastrophe.
