Backup Legal Data In Canada

You have an ethical duty to ensure the protection and safety of your law firm records for both you and your clients.

Law firms and legal organizations tend to generate significant data related to client matters, including legal briefs & research, court transcripts, along with client correspondence, your legal management software, and other case related documents.
All this data needs to be protected as part of your document retention compliance.

Backup these important documents to PIPEDA compliant data centers within Canada, where it is offsite, and secured.

Cloud backups ensure an “air-gap” between your systems and your backup – a critical piece that has tripped up companies hit with ransomware attacks. Cloud backups are off-site and therefore unaffected and ready to restore.
