IT and cybersecurity policies should be law firm-wide priorities and not relegated to the IT department. Attorneys and law firm staff are often the cause of breaches and private data leaks, which makes comprehensive policies and training imperative. One of the best ways to prevent cyberattacks, protect client data, and ensure firms can withstand disruptions is to develop and carefully follow standards for firm technologies and their uses.

Law firms need formally documented policies that outline proper procedures for every aspect of their IT environment. Comprehensive IT and cybersecurity policies include an acceptable use policy, business continuity policy, incident response policy, data loss prevention policy, records management policy, mobile device policy, and password policy.
