Good Backup Is Good Business Continuity

By Jim Calloway

Most law firms now store a significant amount of data in the cloud. But that doesn’t mean data backup is not still important.

Catherine Reach, director of the North Carolina Bar Association Center for Practice Management, notes:

“Securing and protecting your firm’s data are essential. Client files, important communications, and valuable work product often exist exclusively in digital format today, and thus a major data loss could have catastrophic professional and ethical ramifications. Whether you are creating a plan for business continuity that contemplates natural disasters, fabricated disasters, pandemics, or other things that go bump in the night, set up good backup procedures so you can recover faster.”
