Legal IT Services from CCE
The future of legal cloud
As Law firms and their clients start to adopt cloud services in earnest, CCE recently held a breakfast seminar exploring the future of cloud services for law firms. This informal gathering brought together cloud experts and legal firms to give their views on technology, innovation and the future direction of how legal firms use cloud computing services.

We know legal – CCE IT services
With the collapse of the ‘Safe Harbour’ agreement, where your legal IT services keep your clients’ data is now a critical issue for your law practice. Legal IT services using US based cloud systems, CRM tools and many other applications may mean your clients’ data is not located within the EU. This can lead to eye-watering fines for the non-compliant. Further more, when the GDPR legislation comes into force in May 2018(which the UK government will adopt irrespective of Brexit negotiations) a practice wide approach needs to be taken to ensure that all personal data is correctly managed and secured.
In response to these challenges and the exponential growth of cloud computing within law firms, we have created a series of white papers to guide you through the issues, risks, benefits and technology. CCE have been delivering legal IT services to the legal sector for over ten years, and understand the enormous benefits Private Cloud services can have for law firms if adopted properly.

Improving Your Security
Managing Partner stated in its 24 September 2015 News Letter that Cyber-attacks on law firms have risen by 40% on last quarter. June 2015 the SRA issued a warning that UK law firms were being increasingly targeted by cyber criminals. With the draconian penalties indicated in the new EU Regulation “up to 4% of revenue” it must surely be worth reviewing your firm’s security measures.
