Whilst most organisations and businesses have a certain amount of governance around security and compliance, never has there been a sector where this is as strict as those working in a legal profession. With buzzwords always around collaborative working, is Microsoft Teams a viable consideration for those working in the legal sector?


In short, the answer is Yes.


One of the biggest considerations around any software and particularly platforms where collaboration is encouraged, documents easily exchanged and data shared, is that of security. This is even more paramount to those people working in the legal sector, where handling sensitive data is par for the course. Not only is GDPR compliance a consideration but also industry guidelines on data distribution and storage.


Microsoft Teams is based on the Office 365 platform, it includes enterprise-grade services such as secure document sharing, real-time collaborative editing, content management and high-grade online storage. It also means you can access the documents you need securely from anywhere, anytime, making remote working easy and accessible to all employees.





Office 365 is compliant with the following industry standards:
  • ISO 27001
  • EU Model Clauses

Permissions, version control and record management are all built-in. Allowing for secure archiving and management of documents.





With built-in security that detects malware, phishing attacks, spam and other threats your data is protected better than ever before. 
The Administration is all from a single portal where you can manage both users and services. Permission levels within Teams further enhance security and these can be managed on a team or channel level.



Layer 1 (1)Document Storage


One of the biggest challenges faced in the legal sector is how to store, manage and share documents securely. With Teams, you can store and access your documents anywhere, anytime and even offline. You also have the ability to share them securely both internally with your team or externally with clients.
