For a Better Crisis Response Process, Scotland’s Largest Law Firm Turned to BlackBerry.
As Scotland’s largest law firm, Brodies LLP employs more than 680 staff between its offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dingwall. Brodies offers legal advice to private and public sector clients both in the UK and internationally in its core business areas of corporate and commercial; energy (both renewables and oil & gas); property; litigation; banking and financial services; employment, pensions and benefits; and trust and tax. The firm has a long history of going above and beyond for its clients, and has received many awards, including being named “Who’s Who Legal Scotland Law Firm of the Year” for the eighth consecutive year.
Given the sensitive nature of the data Brodies frequently works with, security is always front-of-mind. Client data must be treated with the utmost care, protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of both digital and physical files.
As such, Brodies maintains comprehensive disaster recovery and business continuity plans, both of which are regularly reviewed and tested. It was during one such review that an opportunity for improvement was identified.
“We always maintain a high-level business continuity plan around what we can do when things go wrong so we can keep our show on the road and protect our client data,” says Damien Behan, IT Director at Brodies.
