Law Firms and In-House Legal Counsel
Lawyers and law firms have legal obligations after an electronic data breach or cyber-attack occurs according to the Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility of the American Bar Association. It's clear why law firms, in-house legal counsels, and Chief Legal Officers (CLOs) care about log collection. In terms of security breaches or cyber-attacks, logs hold a crucial role in providing an electronic trail of evidence.
Challenges include legal and compliance mandates around log retention and the correct treatment of personal data in logs, through to the need to ensure the integrity of logs in the event of a legal proceeding.
Our solutions are used to successfully capture, securely transport, and store log data by customers around the world, helping them meet their information security and compliance mandates.
- NXLog log collection capabilities assist in meeting obligations such as ISO 27001 or standards offered by the National Institute of Standards and Technology such as SP 800-92. Enabling the general protection of client data and attorney work are among the top benefits of event log collection. For example, it is important to record all edits and revisions of documents so that there is no unauthorized modification or removal of information.
- Audit logging records crucial event records, not only in the event of meeting compliance requirements but also in the event of an incident response or as part of a post-breach investigation. NXLog provides log collection capabilities for these types of incidents. In the security industry, NXLog software is suggested and recommended by security researchers working in the areas of incident and digital forensics.
- GDPR compliance is mandatory for all companies within the EU that process the personal data of their clients. NXLog provides features to help with GDPR compliance, such as forwarding logs to a centralized server for further processing such as applying log retention policies.
