Pivot Group knows there are many security issues facing the legal community that could have an extreme effect on the practice, such as having case notes appear on the adversary's website, having all electronic evidence destroyed, not being able to access electronic information before pretrial, or client information, whose industry has strict privacy rules (GLB/HIPAA), being compromised on the firm's network.

With a proactive information security program, you can minimize risk and put practical steps in place to insure minimal loss and downtime with business continuity and disaster recovery programs. In the legal service market, it is a business requirement for law firms to maintain a high level of information security.

The first step to a proactive security program is to embrace a management philosophy and strategy which ingrains security as a way of doing business versus an afterthought of doing business. A strong security program is a great business enabler as well. Once you have identified your critical business assets and have assessed their vulnerabilities, a proactive security plan can be developed which includes people, processes, and technology that meet your business objectives and resource requirements. In addition to risk assessment and asset protection, incident response, business continuity, and disaster recovery are key elements to help mitigate your overall business risk.
