What Are The Benefits?

Security. At a time when cybersecurity is extremely important and constantly changing, CaseShield by AAA-ICDR provides multiple layers of security including encryption, Enterprise-grade anti-virus/
anti-malware protection, and multi-factor authentication.

This provides significant defense against most common security threats and vulnerabilities … Phishing, Ransomware, Poor Access Control, Poor Password Management, Lack of Encryption, and Poor Patch management. CaseShield by AAA-ICDR offers ‘Enterprise-grade’ cyber protections consumers cannot purchase/configure on their own, with an easy to use standardized desktop environment and on-demand, help desk support. Also new security threats are evaluated and the required response is applied by experts. This eliminates the need for the Arbitrator to vet, acquire, configure, manage and monitor their own security tools and settings.

Simplicity. All of your important case files and information will be streamlined into one, secure, standardized location that you can access everywhere you go.

Support. On demand desktop technical support will be available to users. 

Is CaseShield by AAA-ICDR right for me if I currently work at a law firm or a company that has cybersecurity tools in place?

If you are a lawyer at a firm, there might be security protocols in place. However, CaseShield by
AAA-ICDR will provide you, the arbitrator, with several key benefits. These include:

  • Strict separation between your work for the law firm and your work as an arbitrator
  • Keeps confidential arbitration case information off of the law firm’s servers and databases
  • Eliminates the risk for parties in an arbitration if the law firm has a data breach and arbitration case information is accessed
  • Gives arbitrators the ability to have retention periods for arbitration cases that are independent of a law firm’s retention requirements for client files
  • Eliminates the risk of in advertent disclosures that can occur by having arbitration case files and information on law firm servers and databases
  • Provides peace of mind of retaining control over arbitration case files if you decide to leave your firm.
How much does CaseShield by AAA-ICDR cost?

After the 30-day free trial, the cost will be $199 per month. You will be offered an option to enroll for the full year. By taking advantage of this, you will receive an additional one month of CaseShield by AAA-ICDR free. If you do not enroll in this option, you will be billed monthly.
