Files and folders are only seen by those who have permission to access them
Law firms handle highly sensitive and confidential information and the safety of such information is paramount. Therefore, knowing that such classified data is entirely safe and secure from unauthorised personnel is crucial. A legal intranet must adopt strong cyber security, utilising a multi-layered approach with up-to-date encryption software and malware protection to ensure infrastructure, endpoints, mobile devices and internet connections are all adequately protected.
Your organisation’s files are stored in an intuitive folder structure
Rather than having multiple sources of information and document management databases, all information can instead be stored on one platform on the intranet making important documentation much easier to retrieve. The intranet can be the central repository for all relevant case law, precedents, legislation and law review articles. It can be structured and organised to reflect the business of the law firm.
An advanced search functionality can also be implemented to ensure that staff members can quickly locate the information they require. Filters enable users to narrow down their search and they also provide ways to search for relevant results even if the user is unsure of exactly what they are searching for.
In addition, this section of the intranet can be quickly and easily updated, a feature that is ideal for accommodating a large influx of documentation and the ever-changing nature of legal instruments. As such, employees can be confident the information they are accessing is the most up to date and relevant.
