Law In Order uses Darktrace AI platform for ‘sensitive’ document protection


Australian and Asian legal document and digital solutions provider Law In Order is using security firm Darktrace’s cyber AI platform to protect sensitive client information.

Law In Order has rapidly expanded its Australian and Asia Pacific footprint, servicing top-tier law firms, companies, and government agencies globally - and because of the nature of the data it is charged to protect, it has to comply with rigorous security and confidentiality protocols, making cyber defence a top business priority.

Darktrace says Law In Order was concerned about zero-day external threats and, in addition, to the risk of insider threat.

But according to Darktrace, securing Law In Order is complicated as, due to accountability and compliance standards, the organisation and network must be segmented by ‘ethical walls’ – or barriers that are established to prevent communications or information exchange between teams that could lead to potential conflicts of interest.

Darktrace says that, after extensive research, Law In Order selected its cyber AI platform for its ability to detect and contain never-before-seen threats, “no matter where they emerge within the business”.

And, in addition, Law In Order uses several cloud and virtualised environments for business efficiency, and Darktrace says the law firm needed a technology capable of identifying and neutralising threats across a diverse and complex digital infrastructure.

Nathan Hillery, CIO at Law In Order, said: “Data is at the core of what we do, so for our clients and for ourselves, we need absolute faith in our ability to secure sensitive information. Darktrace’s self-learning AI has given us that confidence”.

“Darktrace’s ability to identify threats that go missed by other security tools, along with the ability to provide total visibility across our network and cloud environments, is nothing short of ground-breaking. Armed with this AI platform, we are assured that we can move forward with our technology roadmap without compromising on security.”
