Understanding Encryption…

0

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 pmap@scbar.org for free assistance if you have questions.

“Your Password Has Expired” Scam

Have you received a very official-looking email that says “your password has expired” or “change your password now”?

Before you investigate, be aware that phishers are using this clever scam to target users to gain access to your online account and data. The FTC and IRTC reminds users to avoid clicking on any links via email, avoid reusing passwords, and change passwords through the verified website and never through email.
