Now is the time to prepare your law firm for the growing Corona virus epidemic.
In response to the current public health emergency, state and local governments across the country are requiring employees to work remotely to reduce the spread of the Corona Virus. Soon, this will be the case in South Florida too.
Legal Computer Consultants can help your law firm develop an emergency plan that includes technology solutions for remote access and communication strategies to ensure your employees, partners and clients have the essential information and tools they need.
How to prepare your law firm:
1. COMMUNICATE an emergency plan: All businesses should have a written emergency plan that outlines how employees should communicate with managers, where they can receive updated information about business hours and employee expectations, how to secure corporate assets and respond to customer requirements, and more. The plan should be distributed, giving staff the opportunity to address any specific concerns.
2. TEST remote work options: Consider off-premise collaboration tools for employees. Employ telephone solutions that include voice, video conferencing and messaging to keep employees working effectively. In addition, provide managers the training they need to manage their teams remotely and clear guidance on what they should expect from remote workers. Confirm your entire staff can concurrently access information they need to respond to customer demands remotely, including encrypted data.
3. SECURE your network and backup data: Responding to an emergency highlights the importance of implementing strong cybersecurity solutions and training your staff on ways to protect company data and assets.
4. DEPLOY collaboration and communication tools: Improving remote work abilities is possible with the help of cloud-based collaboration tools. Whether team members use a tablet, mobile devices or desktop computers, employees can continue to stay connected and remain productive even when they’re not in the office.
