Cybercrime is quickly chipping away at clients’ trust in how law firms secure their sensitive financial data. Some have even launched class action lawsuits in protest. As state bar associations are beginning to clamp down on technology incompetency, you cannot afford to cut corners with safeguarding your clients’ personal data. In fact—as the ABA has indicated—you have an ethical obligation to take reasonable steps to protect that data.
That’s where Abacus Private Cloud comes in. Our cloud hosting platform acts as an encrypted virtual computer that not only stores your PCLaw files, but also runs your PCLaw software. This takes any computer software vulnerability issues out of the equation, since hackers will need to break through our 256-bit AES encrypted, SSL-A certified international data centers to access your account instead of basic anti-virus and firewall programs. This allows you to manage law firm billing and sensitive client financial data in a protected environment. You can even install other Lexis software to boost how PCLaw handles and organizes your firm’s financials and other data.
In addition to our built-in safeguards, all cloud hosting accounts can be customized to meet your specific data security compliance needs. PIPEDA & GDPR? Check & check. PCI DSS? That’s covered too. Our accounts can even be configured to comply with HITRUST, a comprehensive data security standard designed to comply with industry standards such as ISO, HIPAA, COBIT, PCI, and NIST, along with state laws. And if you have any questions or need updates made to your account and software, our PCLaw and Lexis software hosting experts are available to help both during and after normal business hours.
