In a recent ILTA-hosted webinar, COO Sherry Gini of the Chicago law firm, Goldberg Kohn, discussed how her law firm evaluated and implemented an effective IT disaster recovery (DR) strategy to protect their business. In the below video, listen to why she chose Bluelock’s Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) for data security and resiliency.
There are important considerations when selecting the right technology solutions for your law firm, such as budget, existing expertise and client demand. Gini gives advice to her fellow law firms in translating the effectiveness of a DRaaS solution into business wins for clients, board members and insurance providers. In the case of Goldberg Kohn, their committee leadership recognized that in order to remain competitive in the marketplace and keep up with 24×7 client demand, they needed a new technology solution to guard against security threats. They also had a physical infrastructure that needed a hybrid solution to fully protect their assets.
With only a handful of experienced personnel who could perform their full DR execution, they thought it was too risky to rely solely on these individuals and sought for external assistance during a disaster scenario. This made DRaaS a practical choice, given the team of experts they would receive on-hand to manage and recover assets in a fully-managed model. But selecting a provider with the right cultural fit that could deliver on their strict set of promises was difficult to find. In the end, Bluelock was the perfect match.
