Video - Workshare | Risk Analytics for legal teams

Workshare's risk analytics tool is designed to monitor and control distribution of sensitive matter files to help prevent risk and data loss events.

It has been developed in conjunction with an advisory group of leaders in the legal industry.

Hear from our CRO, Nick Thomson, about the types of reports available and how they have been created specifically to support the needs of legal teams.


Many current tools are not sensitive enough for law firms to be able to accurately detect when there's risk in the mail flow; when files could be taken out of the document management system and emailed inappropriately to somebody else.

So, we’ve spent the last two years working with some of the largest firms in the industry, trying to work out what the key points were and what key integrations were required to offer a realistic solution to the market.

What we've developed now can be deployed in two hours into your exchange environment and analyzes your sent mail items to identify where there's risks in your mail. Our system will scan through and identify every single e-mail where there is sensitive information left inside a document. This can be things like hidden rows in Excel on slides, or comments unintentionally left inside documents, and we can take you right to the offending e-mails and they can be investigated and the risk prevented.

The second report is the report that looks at ethical wills and what we've done is design a report that can take information from the content management system and the ethical software to identify when someone's taking a file out of the DMS and accidentally e-mailed it to somebody who is outside the ethical wall. A highly sensitive test breaks down the reasons for the breach and allows you to do rapid investigations, identifying where potentially things have just been misconfigured or, indeed, somebody is trying to do something else.

Another report that we built out is ability to analyze the use of personal e-mail. In certain instances, this is perfectly valid for a domain to be used in private e-mail, but in other cases where you're dealing with maybe financial institutions it's completely inappropriate. So, it’s sensitive enough to detect when the appropriate use is happening and an inappropriate use is happening, allowing you to investigate and protect your firm and your firm's reputation.

Those are just three of over 18 reports that we've produced specifically for the world's law firms. If you'd like to know more please get in touch. We're ready to give a demonstration. We can even set you up with a free trial to start identifying risks, so you can make changes today.

Thank you.
