Data Security

Protect your data and privacy with LEAP

Introducing Two-Factor Authentication

Data security remains a hot topic in the legal industry. The 2019 Small Law Industry Outlook found that 52% of legal practitioners surveyed have identified interception of email communication as the biggest security threat to their business and 60% believe that cyber security will be the top priority for the small law industry in 2019.

Legal practitioners have an ethical obligation to take reasonable precautions to safeguard their clients’ confidential information. LEAP is Australia’s only Legal Practice Management Software provider to offer law firms the added security of two-factor authentication. This extra layer of protection ensures that unauthorised persons outside your firm aren't accessing confidential data without authentication, alleviating the front-of-mind concerns of a security breach.

How does it work?

In order to prevent unauthorised access to your account, when users log in on a new computer, for example a laptop at home, they will be prompted to enter a one-time verification code sent to their mobile device. This second-factor code is also time-sensitive, meaning that anyone who intercepted the code would not be able to use it because it would no longer be valid. With LEAPs 2FA feature you are completely in control of who has access to your data.

You owe it to yourself and your clients to keep their information safe. We protect your firm’s highly-sensitive data, your credibility and your reputation.

How is your law firm protecting your client data from a breach?

The Notifiable Data Breaches scheme is now in effect in Australia and small law firms that are subject to the Privacy Act 1988 must now meet requirements under the NDB scheme. There are some exceptions, however the obligation falls on your firm to safeguard your client data.

Every law firm is collecting, storing and using client data in the daily provision of legal services. Regardless of your law firm’s size or revenue you are expected to protect this data from unauthorised access. If you are subject to the Privacy Act 1988 and your firm is an identified entity, you are now regulated to report eligible data breaches to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC).

Our whitepaper How is your law firm protecting your client data from a breach? covers:

  • what constitutes an eligible data breach
  • what type of personal information has been involved in data breaches
  • the questions you need to ask yourself to ensure your firm has taken sufficient steps to protect your client data.
