At Lawcus, we understand that data security is of paramount importance for every law firm or legal organization. We prioritize implementing robust security measures across all features and functionalities of our practice management tool.

Here are the key security tiers embedded within Lawcus to ensure your data remains highly protected:

Industry-Standard Data Encryption

To safeguard data during transit, whether you're logged into your Lawcus account or not, our website employs SSL encryption. This means that all data exchanged is securely encrypted, preventing unauthorized access. Lawcus utilizes Amazon SHA-256-bit SSL Encryption, a top-tier encryption grade trusted by banks and financial institutions. This ensures that your interactions with Lawcus are fully secure.

For data at rest, Lawcus employs encrypted Amazon data servers and centers. This means that even when you're inactive on Lawcus, your data is securely stored and protected from unauthorized access, including by Amazon employees.

IP Address Restriction

To provide an additional layer of security, Lawcus offers IP address restriction functionality. By default, users can access Lawcus from any network. However, with IP address restriction, you can specify the IP addresses from which users can be granted access. This helps prevent the usage of unsecured networks by your team members, reducing the risk of exposing sensitive data to security threats.

Permissioned Internal Access

Lawcus enables you to establish hierarchical access controls within your legal organization. By assigning different roles with specific permission levels, you can create a "Chinese wall-like" barrier to restrict access to various types of practice information. For example, you can restrict junior or temporary users, such as legal interns, from firm user management, accounting, report analytics, and other sensitive areas.

Two-Factor Authentication

To provide an extra layer of security during the login process, Lawcus supports two-factor authentication (2FA). With 2FA, in addition to providing your email and password, you will need to enter a uniquely generated code from a connected authentication app. This ensures that only authorized individuals can access your Lawcus account, enhancing the overall security of your data.

E-Sign Security

Lawcus integrates with Hellosign, a reputable and widely recognized e-signature product. Hellosign has implemented robust security protocols to protect your e-signatures. You can refer to their website for detailed information on their security measures.

At Lawcus, we continually strive to uphold the highest security standards and regularly enhance our security measures to meet evolving industry best practices. Your data security is our utmost priority, and we are committed to ensuring your information's confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
