Beyond email, files and documents stored in cloud-based repositories are also at risk of being exposed.

It’s that time of the year again, tax season. Un-arguably the most hectic time of the year for any CPA or tax professional. During this busy season, it is important to remember that the security and privacy of your client’s tax information is of the utmost importance, and securely communicating with co-workers and with clients is a vital part of keeping this information secure. To meet the security needs of your clients and your business, you need a solution that can securely encrypt sensitive emails and attachments.
If you work in the healthcare field, you’re probably somewhat familiar with the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (commonly known as HIPAA). What you may not know is that every year, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) conducts a number of compliance audits to ensure that covered entities are fulfilling their duties to adequately protect patient health information as required by HIPAA. Starting this year, the list of entities that can be audited was expanded to include small practices (those with less than 15 employees), and since the audit selection process is random it is important for your practice to be ready at all times.
This past October, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled to invalidate the long-standing Safe Harbor pact between the United States and the European Union. The Safe Harbor pact was established in 2000, and gave U.S. companies the right to transfer and store EU citizen's data stateside. The ECJ's decision was likely driven by recent revelations regarding data surveillance efforts by U.S. government organizations like the NSA. In light of this development, the European Commission and the United States recently agreed on a new framework for governing transatlantic data flows: the EU-US Privacy Shield.
The practice of law is constantly evolving. As with most businesses, email has become the most common method for exchanging information with clients. As a legal professional, you have an ethical duty to take reasonable measures to protect client information from exposure to un-authorized access. If you accidentally send a document to the wrong person, or if your email gets hacked and leaked to the public, the ramifications could not only affect your clients but your practice and potentially your future.
The American Bar Association published a formal opinion entitled Duty to Protect the Confidentiality of E-mail Communications with One’s Client. In it, the ABA outlines several common scenarios where one must consider the risk of using electronic communications that third party may gain access to. Fortunately, there are many easy to use email encryption technologies that allow you to secure sensitive emails and attachments without sacrificing ease of use.
