Next week, Sensei is excited to be presenting two seminars to the Ohio State Bar Association. Sharon Nelson and John Simek will present “Cybersecurity Tips at Warp Speed for Lawyers” and “Effective Cybersecurity Training for Law Firm Professionals” at the Data Breach and Cybersecurity Summit on December 12th. You can see more information here.
“Future-Proofing Your Law Practice” by Sensei’s Sharon Nelson and John Simek was featured in the November 2018 issue of the San Bernardino Bar Bulletin.
Excerpt: As we travel around the Commonwealth lecturing to lawyers on technology and security topics, we’ve met a lot of lawyers worrying about the future of their practices. Some are resigned. It is not uncommon to hear “I just want to hang on for a couple more years. Then I’ll retire.” The younger lawyers don’t have that option. They are inclined to ask, “What can I do? How will I survive?” But take heart, there are ways to compete – and not only to survive, but thrive.
It’s a digital world
There is no way of getting around the need to educate yourself on the digital world. You don’t need to be a technologist, but you do need a fundamental knowledge of the technology you are (and should be) using. Not only do ethical rules require that, it just makes sense. There are lots of CLE courses to assist you.
Sensei’s Sharon Nelson was featured in the November 2018 edition of the Washington Lawyer. She was highlighted in the article “Smart Cities: The Future of Living” by Sarah Kellogg. Washington Lawyer is a publication of the D.C. Bar.
Excerpt: Sharon D. Nelson, an attorney and president of Sensei Enterprises, Inc., a digital forensics and cybersecurity firm in Virginia, believes that while many people enjoy the benefits of smart cities, few are even remotely aware of how intrusive these applications can be in their daily lives.
“Most people below a certain age don’t care about all the sensors in our lives,” says Nelson. “They have already given up all their privacy. It’s not even an argument they understand. The folks of a certain age tend to get the privacy dangers. They’re the ones who have read the book 1984 and understand what’s at stake.”
In this day and age, cybersecurity should be essential to any law firm. On this edition of Digital Detectives, hosts Sharon Nelson and John Simek are joined by Kellam Parks, a managing member of Parks Zeigler, PLLC in Virginia Beach, to discuss why cybersecurity is essential to your firm, incident response plans, cyberinsurance, cybersecurity measures, and Kellam’s impressions of solos/small firm’s cybersecurity awareness and preparedness.
