Law firms are an attractive target for cyber criminals, due to the confidential nature of their clients’ information and the volume of funds passing through trust accounts at any given time. Law firms are in a position of ‘trusted advisor’ to their clients, and there is enormous risk of severe consequences and reputational damage if a firm experiences a cyber security event.
Cyber security breaches occur every hour, every day – in fact, every 7 minutes. It is a vital area of information technology for law firms, and requires best-in-class innovative solutions. Cyber attacks are not a matter of ‘if,’ they are a matter of ‘when.’
LexVeritas is proud to partner with AUCloud to deliver the LexCloud solution to the legal market.
The Benefits of LexCloud
The LexCloud Solution – keeping your firm’s data secure and stored safely onshore.
Whilst cloud services are not new, there is increased scrutiny by all stakeholders in a legal environment to ensure firms know and understand where their data is located, who is looking after it, how often it is being maintained and backed up, and what strategies are in place to secure it 24/7.
Cloud services overall provide enormous flexibility, agility and efficiencies in data access, management, and use. However, the ability to protect that data breaks down as it is moved, managed, stored, analysed, and used across the global digital supply chain.
Legal firms’ clients are demanding localised control of their data – a notion called ‘sovereign data protection.’ The assurance that the data never leaves Australia is a client demand that is justifiably on the rise.
Currently, amongst many cloud providers in the market, even if they ensure law firms that the physical servers are located in Australia, there is still meta data and analytics that is shared with parent companies offshore as well as operational staff located around the world who have access to your information. This means that you put your data at risk of exposure to global networks of cyber criminals.
LexVeritas partners with AUCloud to assure that our clients’ data will never leave Australia – we want certainty that no individual and no foreign government can access our clients’ information.
LexCloud is available in a single or dual solution.
LexCloud is available in two solutions:
1. LexCloud Resilience
2. LexCloud Hosting
Infrastructure as a Service (IAAS)
