Law Data Loss Prevention


Legal service providers acquire, process, and retain massive volumes of sensitive data as part of their services. Apart from personally identifiable information (PII) on clients, workers, and partners, law firms and in-house legal departments acquire sensitive corporate data such as trade secrets, patents, and intellectual property.

As a result, they are targeted by opportunistic attacks, nation-state actors, and individuals intending to engage in insider trading using sensitive client information. Additionally, employees constitute a significant hazard to data security.

Data breaches and data loss are all too common as a result of ordinary behaviours such as sending client information over an insecure channel, publishing sensitive data, or transferring client data to an unprotected USB drive.

For law firms, there is a great deal at stake in terms of potential damages in the event of a data breach. These include revenue loss, regulatory fines, customer loss and/or confidence, and reputational damage. A security breach has a detrimental effect on not only the law firm’s future capacity to acquire clients but also on the individual practitioners’ reputations. As a result, businesses in the legal industry require advanced security measures to safeguard sensitive information and thwart cyber threats.

A data loss prevention solution can guard against the leakage and theft of attorney-client confidential conversations and other company-sensitive data. It can identify potential breaches and insider threats by preventing sensitive data from being shared, transmitted, copied, or printed directly. This significantly improves a legal firm’s security stance.

By deploying a DLP solution, law firms may gain control over the devices linked to staff computers, prevent sensitive client information from being shared via email and applications, and ensure regulatory compliance by scanning employee laptops for secret information.

Industry Regulations

Some of the most common IT compliance requirements and regulations that apply to companies in the legal industry are:

  • EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • American Bar Association’s (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Conduct (Formal Opinion 477R and Formal Opinion 483)
  • NIST SP 800-53
