We all know that securing our law firms and protecting client information is our ethical duty. Thus, the continuing focus on security at this year’s ABA TECHSHOW.
Among the topics:
- Cloud computing
- Password management
- Secure file sharing
- Training staff
- Trends in hacking threats
Of course, there were the usual reminders: don’t use unsecured WiFi, don’t click without thinking, watch out for keyloggers when using public computers, and use strong (and unique) pass phrases for all accounts.
Even so, reminders don’t hurt. And we need to stay on top of trends like how to secure your phone when traveling or Internet-connected printers, TVs, baby monitors, or appliances that may be spying on us.
So get a cup of coffee or tea, and take five with me. Check out these “best of” summaries of what the experts at TECHSHOW shared:
