You Are Now Connecting to Work Remotely: Is Your Cybersecurity Up to the Task?

Thanks to our own Second Vice Chair Terry Sanks for sharing an article that he co-authored for the INTA blog titled You Are Now Connecting to Work Remotely: Is Your Cybersecurity Up to the Task?

As lawyers, we are high value targets for cyber-criminals due to the wealth of confidential information in our files.  The article addresses the security issues inherent in our (and our clients’) ever-increasing use of mobile devices.
