When a law firm is dealing with private and confidential documents on a daily basis, it is vital to have a system in place for protecting the information of your clients and cases. Here are a few tips to help you keep documents safe.
- Control document access – First of all, rooms that contain paper documents should only be accessible to authorized personnel. Second, any documents that are stored electronically need to be secure. That means anyone with a password needs to understand how to keep it safe.
- Shred to dispose of documents – When you need to dispose of documents, be sure to use a shredder or a reputable service for handling the proper destruction of confidential documents.
- Educate your staff – Your entire team, from the lawyers down to someone working at the front desk, need to understand how to handle confidentiality.
- Hire a professional records retrieval service – From the way the records are retrieved to how they are delivered to you, hiring a professional service ensures that confidentiality is maintained and that the documents are procured legally. That will keep you from running into a roadblock during your case.
