0

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.

Talk to your technology specialist about your backup. For further information, contact pmap@scbar.org.

Has this happened to you?

You’re deep in thought, writing a legal document on your PC, when you have to stop what you’re doing to remember how to insert a section symbol. Or maybe it’s the paragraph symbol, or the abbreviation for the court.

Lawyer Brian H. Potts has developed a keyboard for lawyers, called the LegalBoard.

LegalBoard puts symbols, track changes, common legal terms and more--right on your keyboard! If you are interested in learning more about this time and aggravation-saving device, read reviews on LawSites and Lawyerist.com.

If your answer is longer than 30 days, then you might want to think about backing it up and encrypting it today!

Why? Because in the United States, a laptop goes missing every 50 seconds!

That's not the best odds for a busy law firm!

Don't take a chance! Fully backup and encrypt that laptop or mobile device today!
