India, Compliance, and DLP

According to this article, outsourcing services to India and other less expensive offshore labor pools has recently expanded to legal services. Mindcrest employs 459 lawyers in Pune, India. The Indian lawyers are trained in the same common-law and business principles as British, Canadian, and U.S. lawyers.

On one hand, the cost savings are extremely attractive. However, regulatory regimes or laws may prohibit certain types of data leaving the company, leaving the country, or being shared with individuals in certain restricted countries.

As outsourcing plays an ever-increasing role, the role of data leak prevention (DLP) and similar solutions will thus become critical within three to five years. Cheaper lawyers in India are just one of the reasons.
