Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 04, 2014
Today Stokes, Lazarus and Carmichael LLP (SLC) announced that it has recently completed a series of updates designed to ensure the ongoing protection, confidentiality and security of its clients’ data. Recent weather events underscored the importance of striving for the best but preparing for the worst, and SLC also has a solid crisis and continuity plan in place for any event.
“Our firm specializes in serving community banks and businesses, and we don’t take that responsibility lightly,” said partner Wayne Lazarus. “We are invested in providing the best legal counsel no matter what the circumstance, and that includes implementing the latest security innovations for our digital records, and continuity of service in the face of a natural or man-made disaster.”
SLC has a history of implementing top-notch security measures. Consulting with leading technology experts, SLC routinely evaluates and updates its security systems on a regular basis. The firm offers employees secure, centralized document management, which means attorneys and staff can continue working securely from a remote location when the office is inaccessible, such as during the recent winter storm.
The firm is also prepared for its office location to face a physically catastrophic event, such as a fire or earthquake, and yet become fully operational at a different location within 24-48 hours. The firm owns an extensive security system in the 15,000 square foot building it owns and occupies in Atlanta’s Buckhead business district. Network data, as well as the data stored locally on computers, is backed up daily and the redundant data storage system is located more than 25 miles away from the firm’s primary location, as recommended by top security experts. And as part of the recent upgrades, attorney’s and support staff are all equipped with new computers.
“Delivering best-in-class service includes maximizing our operational efficiency,” said Lazarus. “By continually evaluating our systems and implementing upgrades, we are providing our clients with yet another layer of protection and peace of mind.”
