Online Meetings: GDPR-Compliant, Secure & Affordable Web Conferencing for Attorneys

Make Your Law Practice Resilient and Boundless

In my days as a starry-eyed law scholar, I never envisioned handling legal matters in my sleepwear. Surprisingly, this has become the norm for numerous attorneys globally, all due to online meeting platforms.

Yet, there’s a catch. As a legal professional, your online conference application cannot just be satisfactory. The defensive shield has to be impenetrable, safeguarding your client’s confidential data while complying with privacy legislations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Plus, for individuals who understand the value of each hard-earned dime, it must also be budget-friendly.

U.S. companies that have implemented GDPR compliance measures varies. Here are some statistics:

  • A 2019 survey showed that 39% of US companies had taken steps to comply with GDPR[1].
  • In 2018, 12% of US companies were GDPR-compliant, up from 4% in 2017[2].
  • By the end of 2018, 74% of US companies expected to be GDPR-compliant, and nearly all brands (93%) projected full compliance by the end of 2019[2].
  • Around 80% of US businesses have taken precautions to comply with GDPR, and approximately 27% of these businesses invested more than $500,000 to secure GDPR compliance[3].
  • A 2021 survey found that 9% of US firms had allocated more than $10 million to GDPR compliance[4].
  • However, a 2022 survey found that 94% of US companies were ill-prepared to comply with GDPR requirements[5].

Say Hello to GDPR-Compliant Video Conferencing

You’d think finding a platform that ticks all these boxes is as likely as finding a unicorn in the wild, right? Well, think again! O-Connect, my friends, is that unicorn. It’s built for professionals who demand no less than top-notch security and affordability.

Imagine a bustling law firm: The phone’s ringing off the hook, and you’re swamped with piles of cases. Your assistant, an AI in O-Connect, sets up a meeting with a client in France while you’re reading this. The meeting goes smoothly, no language barriers whatsoever, thanks to the automatic language translation feature. Now, that’s a lifesaver!

But what about GDPR compliance? Remember, a hypothetical lawyer named “Bob.” He was slapped with a hefty fine for using a non-compliant video conferencing tool. The violation? Failure to protect client data during web meetings.

That’s a nightmare you’ll never have with O-Connect. It’s designed to be GDPR compliant, meaning your online meetings are always within legal boundaries.

A Secure Platform Is a Lawyer’s Best Friend

O-Connect isn’t just about being GDPR-compliant. It’s about providing that vault-like security every lawyer needs.

Let’s consider another hypothetical example. Let’s call her “Mary,” a prominent lawyer, who was in the middle of a high-profile case. She was using an average video conferencing tool when her online meeting was infiltrated by a hacker who stole vital case information.

With O-Connect, Mary’s story would have had a different ending. O-Connect’s robust security measures, like end-to-end encryption and two-factor authentication, mean that your meetings are not just meetings; they’re veritable fortresses.

Let’s be honest. Lawyers like you and me, we like to keep our costs low. We want value for our money. We’d rather spend on a tailored suit than on a web conferencing tool. And that’s where O-Connect shines.
