Understanding Encryption…


Does your firm require full-disk encryption on every work-purpose mobile device or laptop?

Do you know if your client’s information is safe and confidential?

If your computer or mobile device is password protected but not encrypted, it may not be protected as this article from The New York Times points out. Don’t be intimidated: encryption is not difficult to achieve.

If you do encrypt, it is important to understand which form you have, as encryption comes in many forms (depending on the device). Some examples include full-disk hardware encryption, operating system encryption, third-party software encryption, external drive encryption, email encryption, mobile encryption and cloud-storage encryption.

Evaluate the technology you use and make sure all possible areas are protected as well. Contact for free assistance if you have questions.



Are you prepared for a hard drive fail or an office-server failure?

Do you own a three-copy backup?

If not, ABA TECHSHOW 2018 speaker and planning board member, Barron Henley, suggests not to cut costs. Rather, legal-tech professionals suggest firms implement multiple backup solutions, such as an internet cloud backup (Mozy ProMozy HomeCrashPlanCarboniteSOS Online Backup), along with multiple external hard drives, and a form of network attached storage.
