BYOD Is Top Challenge For Lawyers In 2014
Online security is extremely important as well. All cloud-based accounts must be properly secured, so that data is secure throughout transit, from the moment it leaves a BYOD mobile device, until it reaches its destination. High-strength passwords, third-party encryption, two-factor authentication, data loss protection and a secure backup plan can be used to secure online accounts.
Specific accounts and information should only be accessed by those that "need to know." Court workers, research workers, private investigators, and other sources working with the lawyer may need access to some of the information in order to efficiently complete their tasks. But to grant full access to accounts with information on other cases, unrelated client information, or with sensitive law firm information simply opens the door to abuse of information.
BYOD data loss protection and backup
cloudHQ is a data loss protection service that protects your data 24/7/365. It works by automatically replicating all cloud data from one account to another. If attackers gain access to your main account, the secondary account remains secure and all data can be instantly restored. Obviously the secondary account should not be linked in any way to the main account (other than through cloudHQ), for instance- don't use email addresses associated with your law firm, don't use the same password, don't give out the account access to anyone, don't use the same (or linked) payment methods, etc. The secondary account should be totally isolated from the other so that when an incident occurs, the attacker has no chance of reaching the secondary account. And cloudHQ will be right there to dutifully backing up your data 24-hours-a-day so that NONE of your data will be lost, even if you are working online when an incident occurs. Protect your online data now with complete cloud protection from cloudHQ.
