Lawyers have a responsibility to protect personal information of clients under the Rules of Conduct and Client Care as well as the Privacy Act 2020. Breaching this can result in penalties as well as loss of reputation or worse. But what if an unauthorized person from the Internet reveals it?
As technology develops lawyers must update procedures and ensure they have robust security practices.
Law firms are a major target for cybercriminals because they deal with large amounts of money and hold a lot of confidential information.
When was the last time you reviewed your procedures? Are you continuing to invest in the latest technology to help make you more secure? Are you requiring your vendors to improve their products to keep you protected?
New Zealand Computing Solutions can recommend and help ensure your law firm has the latest security best practices and can recommend changes to procedures and updated technology. One of the first things we do is provide security awareness training to staff.
