Legal Industry Concerns

DATA BREACH RISK ON MOBILE DEVICES
Few things can have a more disastrous effect on a law firm than the breach of client confidentiality caused by a data breach. It is important to realize that over 60% of all data breaches reported to authorities are not caused by online hacks but by the loss of control of a physical data asset. Law firm’s portable computers and communications devices are exactly the types of data assets that are most frequently mishandled. The challenges associated to controlling these types of data assets includes the eventual collection and disposal of damaged and obsolete devices. These devices all store data on solid state electronics not hard drives. Solid state storage is nearly impossible to sanitize effectively. The only truly effective way to destroy the recorded data is by shredding the device.
We destroy more cell phones and PDAs for our law firm clients than hard drives
Electronic data discovery activity almost always includes court ordered destruction of information collected after litigation is completed. Your firm and individual attorneys will be required to attest to this destruction. We regularly provide “auditable chain of possession” documentation of the destruction of the data media used to store the collected EDD information.
We not only provide “Chain of Possession” secure data destruction services to law firms but also to the largest EDD service providers in the country.
