Ethics are an attorney’s modern day commandments. These rules and regulations are entrenched in every aspect of your practice; most importantly, the confidentiality of clients’ information. State Bar Associations have each held that “cloud computing,” or electronic storage, is permissible so long as attorneys exercise the same standard of reasonable care as they do with paper filing. This includes performing due diligence to ensure the confidentiality, preservation, and availability of information.
The question is, how does Compliant ensure your client content remains confidential?
Investigate. We will investigate your provider’s security measures to ensure that they have taken adequate steps to preserve client confidentiality and system security.
Secure. Next, we will ensure that your files are properly backed up at multiple locations, as well as guarantee your provider has taken measures to protect your client’s information from natural disasters, viruses, or malicious hacking.
Connect. In the event that your provider closes overnight, we will ensure that you maintain access to your data.
Protect. If you ever decide to leave a provider, we ensure that your client’s data is wiped clean and permanently purged from their servers.
Notify. In the event of a system security breach, we ensure that your provider notifies you immediately.
These are a few of the many vigorous compliance tests we run when endorsing your secured data providers. Once your providers have passed evaluation, we will certify your firm and represent that you have met the reasonable standard of care required of you as an attorney should any allegations arise to the contrary.
Cloud computing is innovating to the practice of law. Compliant thoroughly tests your provider’s ability to ensure confidentiality, providing you with the peace of mind needed when implementing cloud computing in your practice.
