Protect against internal data breaches

Data breaches and cybersecurity threats targeting law firms and corporate law departments are a major challenge facing legal professionals and their IT counterparts. As custodians of sensitive and high-value information, legal professionals hold troves of confidential, sensitive and privileged information, including strategic plans, IP, employment contracts, customer information, privileged communications, NPI, PII and other sensitive data.

Organizations have ethical, legal and regulatory compliance obligations to protect sensitive information. While most organizations focus on outside security threats, internal threats represent the growing majority of threats and remain overlooked.
