What you will learn, discover and become aware of in this guest lecture:
Computer security is hard to keep up with – especially if you’re a busy lawyer trying to run a practice. Here are a sample of topics Mr. Gregg addressed during his guest lecture.
- Top Attacks Lawyers Should Be Aware Of: spear phishing, malicious coded websites, scareware, man-in-the-middle attacks, and smishing.
- Social Media Security: Ways social media is putting you at risk and how. Bad tiny URLs and social media games are just two of the many things to watch out for. Social Media is also an entree for more devastating attacks from other sources.
- Key Security Tools: The best anti-virus software for PCs, plus the first smartphone anti-virus program (and why you need it), and an emerging tool called the “web filter.”
- Prevention: Why lawyers should stop using Internet Explorer, how to use virtual private networks (VPNs) on your laptop and phone, and creating a password that can’t be cracked by common password-beating programs.
This is a MUST-listen for lawyers, anyone who conducts business and everyone who uses a computer and smart phone. If you think you know everything you need to know about security, think again.
