Requirements for Secure File Sharing at Law Firms

The legal industry largely self-regulates its cybersecurity policies in compliance with the jurisdiction or industry in which a firm may operate. This section provides an overview of the major industry requirements that apply to secure file sharing for law firms.

E.U. - Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE)

The E.U.’s General Data Protection Regulation provides the core framework for European file transfer security. However, the Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE) also provides guidance for law firms operating within the E.U.’s jurisdiction.

U.S. - American Bar Association

The ABA provides guidance for lawyers in Formal Opinion 477R*, which states “A lawyer should understand and use electronic security measures to safeguard client communications and information….if client information is of sufficient sensitivity, a lawyer should encrypt the transmission.”

U.S. - Legal Cloud Computing Association

The LCCA encourages its members and legal service providers to adopt the following data security practices:

  • Standard 5: Encrypt all transmitted data
  • Standard 8: Ensure that data retention policies are in effect to properly delete access to client data
  • Standard 9: Use strong end user authentication
  • Standard 11: Be able to track user activity within the firm’s system
