Cybersecurity For Lawyers

To protect your business and clients, it’s important to be aware of the potential risks and to take steps to mitigate them. A proper cybersecurity program is an investment in your business’ future and success. Just think of the peace of mind of not having to worry about all the tools cyber criminals have to compromise your business and knowing that your business is protected. More importantly, you won’t inadvertently contribute to the breach of one of your clients. 

Breach of cybersecurity can result in stiff penalties. If the breach is severe, fines can be excessive and law firms may also be charged with criminal or civil offenses. This may result even in your license being suspended or revoked.

Single Vendor Approach

There is no longer a need to hire multiple vendors, consultants, or purchase security equipment from several sources. Our team is your partner for your entire cybersecurity program implementation. 

Known Monthly Pricing

Our pricing model is simple, you only pay for the devices that CSS protects and monitors. No more surprises when it comes to pricing, just one known monthly cost for the duration of your contract.

Timely Onboarding

Our team will onboard your organization in a secure, efficient, and timely manner. While you handle your normal business operations, our team will focus on establishing your security and compliance.

Step 2:
Information Gathering


During this phase our team will clarify all of the Applications & Licenses currently being used.

We will also review your Policy Checklist to highlight the additional policies and procedures that are scheduled for development and review.

Our team will start collecting and reviewing logs, as our “Listening Mode” is important to verify any current vulnerabilities and gaps are identified and mitigated.

This step is vital in understanding your current environment, so that CSS technicians can begin posturing new equipment.

Step 3:
Internal Coordination & Review


Your Onboarding Coordinator will now start to coordinate the dates for your onsite install.

During this phase we will begin to coordinate with any other Vendors/Internet Service Providers leading up to the onsite install.

Our Compliance Team will begin sending over initial drafts of your new Policies and Procedures for review and approval.

This phase is key to preparing for a successful onsite install when the time comes.

Step 4:
Policy Review & Equipment Forecast


This phase will get a little bit more busy for your internal team, as each policy needs to be reviewed for understanding and proper alignment with business functions.

As our team continues to prepare for the onsite install we will forecast sub-optimal devices.

This will provide your leadership team with an understanding of any potential devices that we recommend replacing that are near end of life.

Step 5:
Onsite Install & Portal Training


All of the preparation in the previous steps has prepared us for this moment, it’s now time for the onsite install.

Our technicians conduct one final backup prior to reimaging all network devices.

Our installations typically occur on weekends to ensure that we do not impact daily operations.

Our technicians will be by your side for the first day that your team returns to office to ensure that we can answer any questions or address any potential issues quickly.

Step 6:
Local Fixes & Policy Maturity


Our onsite and remote teams work together during this phase to ensure all devices can be accessed/maintained by our Help Desk team.

By this time CSS should start receiving comments back from the Policy and Procedure review that was conducted by your team.

Our Compliance Team will schedule a call to go over any areas of concern that we notice in the comments submitted by your team.

Once all change requests are confirmed, our Compliance Team will  develop the final version of Policies and Procedures for approval.

Step 7:
Finalize Policies & Dashboard


During this phase our Compliance Team will deliver your team the final version of your Policies and Procedures set.

We will also be reviewing your CMMC Compliance Dashboard to identify any remaining actions needed.

In the final review of your CMMC Compliance Dashboard we will ensure that all artifacts are prepared for your C3PAO assessment.

Step 8:
Security Training & Dashboard Overview


Your team is now ready to start taking your security training modules.

Your Onboarding Coordinator will grant your team access to each training model required for CMMC compliance.

Security Awareness, Insider Threat, and Role Based User Access training will be completed on an annual basis for every employee.

We will also complete an overview of the CMMC Compliance Dashboard and schedule your Quarterly Review.

Step 9:
Onboarding Review & Transition


Finally, we made it to the last step of our Onboarding Process.

Your Onboarding Coordinator will introduce you to your Account Manager, and your future interactions will be with our Operations Team.

Although the implementation is complete, CMMC is a maturity model and your organization will need to continue to adapt to the new security culture.

Don’t worry, we will keep you on track with evolving requirements and continue to manage your security and compliance program!

Step 1:
Project Kickoff


Your Onboarding Coordinator will send over a Welcome Email and schedule a Kickoff Call to begin your implementation journey.

We provide our Request for Information (RFI) form to gain a better understanding of your current environment and begin Asset Discovery.

We begin running our Vulnerability Scans, Risk Assessments, and Gap Assessments to assess your environment.

We will also begin to request applicable Security Policies that your organization has previously developed.
