Cybercrime is on the rise, and law firms can’t afford to take their IT security for granted. Law firms are quickly becoming one of the primary targets of cybercriminals looking for personal data to exploit, and made up over 36% of all data breach victims in the Triad during 2014.
That’s why Parkway Technology Solutions CEO, Chris Michalec, will be delivering a keynote speech at the North Carolina Law Tech Expo on May 15, 2015.
Balancing security with your overall IT budget and needs can seem daunting, but it’s simple so long as you have the right advisor on your side. Chris will be speaking about the best practices that law firms MUST consider when securing their data, and how to ensure those practices remain cost effective:
- Consolidating all your security services into one managed security solution, controlling, monitoring, and maintaining all aspects of security from a single, easily accessed panel.
- Creating a mobile device management plan to protect your devices outside the office, so you can safely access data in the office or at court.
- Avoiding threats in the cloud as technology continues to evolve – so you don’t compromise your data by signing up for services like Dropbox or Google Drive without ensuring compliance to regulations.
- Recognizing the signs of cybercrime like phishing attacks, so you and your employees stay safe while using your technology to its fullest.
Simply installing some anti-virus software or a firewall just won’t cut it anymore – you need to think proactively about your firm’s security and ensure you’ve got a comprehensive protection plan in place NOW.
Parkway Technology Solutions will share vital information on IT security for Triad area law firms at NC Law Tech Expo in the morning keynote presentation on May 15.
