With high-profile breaches in the news, law firm clients are less likely to blindly trust their law firms to safeguard their data, asking questions about the advanced security protocols and products employed before making a decision to sign a contract for business.
The American Bar Association reported in its 2015 Legal Technology Survey that one in four firms with at least 100 attorneys have experienced data breaches involving hackers, website attacks or stolen or lost smartphones, tablets or laptop computers.
Carsten Hartmann, Head of Information Technology & IT Security Officer for Stafford & Rosenbaum was determined to proactively implement security to avoid being included in that statistic. His requirements were to keep the firm and client data confidential and uphold attorney-client privilege while effectively and efficiently supporting a team of attorneys who require remote access and prefer to use multiple devices.
