Description

Encryption is now a generally accepted security measure for protecting confidential data – both when stored and transmitted. Data breaches have become a common occurrence, and hackers cannot only get confidential details about a case or deal, but steal your client's information as well. Fortunately, easy-to-use options are available today for encryption. It has now reached the point where all attorneys should generally understand encryption, have it available for use when appropriate, and make informed decisions about when encryption should be used and when it is acceptable to avoid it. Accomplished authors Sharon D. Nelson, David G. Ries and John W. Simek will cover everything you need to know about encryption, breaking down the myths of security and putting the power to protect sensitive data in your hands. Topics include:

  • The basics and history of encryption
  • The ethics of encrypting confidential information
  • A layman's view of encrypting technology
  • Easy to use options for encrypting data on devices like laptops, tablets, and smartphones
  • Encrypting data on the go (including wireless and cloud technologies)
  • Predictions for the future evolution of encryption
