Law firm technology

Process, Standards, and Strategy?

It's a common misconception that law firms are safe from cyber threats because their applications are hosted. The reality is, your law firm manages vast amounts of confidential data, including attorney-client communications, trial prep documents, client medical records, workers' compensation claims, and financial records. This sensitive information is a prime target for cyber threats and must be protected. The belief that you can quickly recover by simply replacing hardware in case of an attack is a dangerous oversimplification.

However, this overlooks critical points: a network breach can allow bad actors to remain undetected for months, gaining access to everything and potentially leading to a double ransomware event. In such cases, attackers not only lock down your network but also demand a ransom to prevent the release of the stolen data. The continuity of hosted applications does not protect against these underlying threats. 

Furthermore, law firms often find themselves grappling with budgeting challenges, frequently reacting to unforeseen large expenses. This reactive approach, particularly in their proactive 'managed services' engagement, significantly hampers their ability to plan and budget for technology investments. Without regular strategic meetings and comprehensive financial oversight, they miss out on opportunities to make informed decisions and set realistic expectations for their technology investments, highlighting the need for a more strategic approach. 



At TotalCareIT, we meet with law firms where they are, regularly to address these specific challenges. We go beyond basic hosting to provide our process based on a proven framework that safeguards your sensitive data against evolving threats. Our process ensures that your firm is not only protected from immediate risks, both cyber and operational but also from long-term vulnerabilities that could be exploited over time.

We help you implement robust operational measures to mitigate operational and security risks. Our approach ensures that your data remains secure and that your operations can continue without interruption, even if your primary systems are compromised.

Our framework helps your firm anticipate technology requirements the same way we anticipate issues before they happen. We work with you to provide the information needed without technical jargon to simply make sound financial decisions, avoid unexpected expenses, and ensure your firm is always prepared for the future.
