Best way to secure data for a law firm

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I was recently having a discussion with a friend of mine who works for a law firm about data security there. Hacking into law firms is a huge issue for them because if their client records are released they can face disbarment and other legal repercussions. We were brainstorming theoretical ways to make the data as impenetrable as possible. My idea was to have an encrypted offline storage system, locked in a safe of some sort. Being offline would eliminate hacking into it, and having it in a safe would make it hard to be broken into.

What do you guys think would be the most extreme solution to this?

Yea, I'd keep it offsite as well, with a 256bit AES encryption in a lockbox.

The only issue I see with my idea is that is would be difficult and a pain to collect the data and store it on said drive, as well as accessing the data without it being on a network.

Yea it's a pain, but that's the safest way possible, other than that though a 256 bit AES encryption is a beast. I'm not sure if anyone has ever publicly decrypted it.
