Using cloud computing enables law firms to take advantage of innovative technologies such as location-based services from mobile applications thus allowing employees to quickly identify the best possible legal solution for their clients without missing a beat in terms of communication between firm members or management officials. The mandatory constant connectivity through wireline and wireless broadband connections offered by cloud-based solutions allows law firms to meet their individualized needs while delivering legal case management services to their clients more effectively. The reduced need for physical infrastructure also helps law firms eliminate the constant overhead costs associated with hiring additional staff and maintaining hardware thus allowing them to use their funds on other important aspects of business operations such as enhancing technological expertise in order to provide better client care.
Lawyers seeking to prevent cyberattacks should take away two key takeaways. In order to protect your law firm's data, you should store it in the cloud. Additionally, there will be 24/7 convenience, security, and flexibility to access firm information, as well as protection from ransomware attacks. Second, use secure client portals for all communications and avoid unsecured email at all costs. By doing this, you can ensure that all of your law firm's client communications are protected, and you can ensure that your employees won't fall victim to spoofing and phishing emails.
Why not use cloud-based software and secure client communication portals if your firm doesn't already? Making this transition at this time is better than ever before.
