Protection of the confidentiality and integrity of sensitive personal data

Security measures are required by law for lawyers, tax consultancies and auditing firms.


What measures can be taken to ensure that the digitization of client collaboration is both legally compliant and secure?

Law firms are also a lucrative target for cyber attacks. The increasing digitalisation and automation of ever more networked processes endangers information security. Files will be managed electronically across the board in the future. This opens up new ways for cyber criminals to violate the integrity or confidentiality of sensitive data, steal data or even make it unusable.

Especially in small and medium-sized law firms, there is not enough qualified staff to ensure information security. Often, people working there are not yet sensitised enough to recognise attacks by phishing e-mails or ransomware and to handle operating resources such as laptops or external data carriers securely.


Branchenspezifische Sicherheitsstandards

The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or the German Federal Lawyers' Act (Bundesrechtsanwaltsordnung) result in requirements for law firms to ensure the duty of care and confidentiality as well as the confidentiality of the information entrusted to them through technical measures. This applies equally to cooperation and communication, whether in the office or increasingly also in the home office.

These include training employees on the topic of IT security, the use of access restrictions, the encryption of data and also the regular assessment of information security risks.
