Media release | Oper8 Global and Thales Cloud Security deliver trusted cloud security for Gadens Lawyers
21 September 2022
Data security is critical to Gadens’ business operations and its ability to service its clients. A robust Encryption at Rest Solution is specifically required by many of Gadens’ clients as part of the fundamental requirements of doing business with them. With ever-increasing cyber incident risk, legislative changes in the cyber incident space, increased regulatory scrutiny and penalties being applied for cyber incident breaches, this is a vital time to implement a significant uplift to Gadens’ overall security posture.
Gadens has worked closely with its technology partner, Oper8 Global, to identify and select CipherTrust Manager as the solution to solve client compliance requirements and manage cyber risk. Thales Cloud Security’s CipherTrust solution is a world-leading product that Gadens puts its trust in.
The critical component of the Thales solution is a highly robust ‘CipherTrust Manager’ that handles all the encryption key management, and access to those keys, in a highly redundant manner. This allows data to be encrypted on disk without the risk of losing access to it. Access to the keys and the data can be managed with a high degree of granularity. This is critical to supporting security operations performance at Gadens.
“If the worst happened and Gadens came under cyber-attack, the risk of an attacker exposing our data and that of our clients is reduced dramatically.”
“At the same time, we are demonstrating that Gadens takes cyber risk seriously across the firm and is taking industry-leading steps to ensure our compliance regime continues to adapt to the regulatory and cyber risk environment.”
Brian Grant, Australia and New Zealand Director for Thales CPL, noted:
“Many legal organisations are happy to give advice to clients on how to mitigate regulatory cyber security risks. Gadens has gone one step further and demonstrated, with their investment to apply industry-leading data security for their client data, that they are willing to set the example for everyone else to follow.”
Nick Lovell, Sales Director for Oper8 Global, says:
“The pragmatic approach that Gadens took meant that they were not only compliant, but were also protecting their data. We are delighted to work with Gadens and look forward to working together in the future.”
