Reliable Security Tips for The Legal Industry
First of all, it’s important that the security solutions that you rely on have been well planned and are the right fit for your office. ClearPath IT Solutions takes the time to get to know your needs and processes so that our team is able to provide solutions that offer maximum protection.
One way to protect your network is to utilize a strong firewall. This offers a reliable layer of protection designed to stop viruses and malware from coming into your system. Additionally, it is important to run regular scans of your entire network and make sure that your virus/malware definitions are up-to-date before you run the scan.
This may seem trivial, but when choosing passwords, your team needs to make sure that they are difficult to guess. Do not use the same password for more than one account and try to use a mixture of symbols, letters, capitals and numbers.
The software that you rely on for your systems should also always be up-to-date. As software and programs get older, vulnerabilities can be found that will offer a way for hackers to get onto your network. One way to combat this is to patch the vulnerabilities.
All of the devices that are used to connect to the network should be protected. This includes smartphones, laptops, tablets, and anything else. We know that mobile devices are increasingly useful in law offices, allowing employees to check email, attend meetings, and even generate documents, so it is important to protect the devices and the network against unauthorized access.
