55th Edition: Locked Down: Information Security for Lawyers
Sharon and Jim talk to noted litigator Dave Ries about information security (or the lack thereof) in law firms. Dave, along with Sharon and John Simek, co-authored the recent ABA book, Locked Down: Information Security for Lawyers. They discuss why law firms are increasingly targeted by hackers, how the hacks are accomplished and steps that law firms should be taking to safeguard their data.
