Data breaches are on the rise, and they’re costlier than ever for businesses.
More than 80% of organizations have experienced more than one data breach in their lifetime. If your client data remains unsecured, consider yourself playing the game of chance.
Modern technology has reached the point where strong security policies to protect client data are no longer optional. If you plan to run a compliant and ethical business, they’re essential.
Why data security is essential for law firms
Securing your clients’ data is part of your obligation to follow regulatory compliance laws set by the bar association. Your client giving you permission to transmit documents in an unsecured manner is not sufficient grounds to go against the rules and laws that govern your firm.
Using secure means to share data and files also demonstrates that you value your clients’ trust and take their privacy seriously. This is critical for building solid relationships with your clients and earning their trust, an essential ingredient of a successful law firm.
There isn’t anything I don’t like. Easier timekeeping and keeps the books straight because they have to match up…we switched because it includes bookkeeping and timekeeping in one program.

Using a third-party platform for accounting didn’t make sense anymore…conflict check approach is good and I like the ability to handle my accounting within the case management software.
