Legal Data? Anchor it™.
Keep clients’ confidential data and intellectual property secure with Anchor.
Attorney-Client Privilege Made Easy

The American Bar Association (ABA) has held lawyers to ethical and model rules of professional conduct. Rule 1.6 ensures that lawyers make reasonable efforts to protect the confidentiality of client information. The ABA issued Formal Opinion 483 in 2018, which gives information on how to handle security breaches.
Formal Opinion 483
Duty of competence: Technology must have adequate security measures in place.
Obligation to monitor: Lawyers must continuously assess their systems, procedures and plans for mitigating a security breach.
Stopping the breach:
If a breach is suspected or detected, lawyers must take steps to stop an attack and prevent further exposure of data.
Notice of breach:
Lawyers who detect a breach must inform their clients in a timely and reasonable manner.
Risk of Security Breach
The threat of an attack has increased as more and more of our work is done online, especially since many law firms have moved to a remote format. When employees check their email, browse social media, or make a client call, sensitive data gets exposed to hackers who can infiltrate your law firm. With 42% of law firms with up to 100 employees having experienced a security breach, legal data security has never been more important.
Anchor is a novel method to ensure that client data remains safely protected, from both outside and inside threats, no matter where the information is stored or moved. With Anchor, when a breach does happen, any stolen data would remain unreadable with military-grade encryption.
How Anchor Supports Confidentiality
Anchor ensures that your clients’ confidential data and intellectual property are secure by allowing individuals to anchor their data. This means that only users who follow the access rules of the protected data are given access. If access rules are not met, the data remains encrypted with a military-grade cipher. Files can be shared securely, and Anchor’s monitoring features lets you audit who is accessing the data and how. Anchor works behind the scenes, remaining invisible to the user and not affecting the way they work. This means less effort at an affordable cost.
The benefits of Anchor include:
- Invisible to the user.
- File-level granularity.
- Always encrypted. Even when in use.
- Instant access revocation.
- Fully auditable. Even if it escapes your network.
In the old days sensitive data was protected with firewalls, shared drives, and a whole lot of user trust. Now the security is baked right into the data itself.
