Think like a Hacker for Data Defense!

Tips to Protecting Your Law Firm

Hacking – def. – manipulating a system to do something it was not designed to do.

More and more law firms are dependent upon technology solutions that are connected to the cloud (the Internet). How do you trust the cloud when everywhere we turn we are reading about the latest security threat or worse experiencing a virus attack ourselves? The key is to think like a hacker! If you understand what motivates a hacker and what they are looking for, then you can put measures into place to safeguard your firm’s network and your client’s data.

It’s time to get hacking – I mean cracking! Please join Eric M. Shorr, President of Secure Future Tech Solutions on Wednesday, March 23rd for a FREE Lunch and Learn. This workshop is good for 1 CEU.

  1. What motivates a hacker? What vulnerabilities is a hacker looking for when attacking a network?
  2. Know the threats entering your network: What is the difference between a virus, malware and phishing attacks?
  3. Knowledge is key: How can you safeguard your client data and network against an attack?
