Best Practices for Data Privacy And Security In Legal Outsourcing

Legal Process Outsourcing (LPO) businesses are emerging with the growing demand for quality legal support services. Attorneys are highly motivated to hire LPOs for integral legal assistance and effective management of the legal outsourcing project. However, attorneys are often concerned about the risks involved in outsourcing and hesitate with the security systems that the LPOs implement. Moreover, owing to the increased cyberattacks and data security threats, attorneys are highly apprehensive about engaging LPOs for legal support services.

At SKJ Juris, our attorney clients are happy and at ease when it comes to data privacy and security. SKJ Juris is an ISO 9001:2015 certified company that strictly adheres to the Data Privacy and Security protocols. We have set standards for dealing with the confidential and sensitive data of our attorney clients and have a comprehensive workflow that ensures utmost data security.
