Identifying Law Firm Website Vulnerabilities

“Law firms are tremendous concentrations of really critical, private information. Infiltrating those computer systems is a really optimal way to obtain economic and personal information,” a statement on the state of security for law firms by Bradford Bleier, unit chief of FBI cyber division.

Every day, law firms manage sensitive information for their clients, including mergers and acquisitions, investments, business strategies and other intellectual property. This has made them a prime target for phishing and cyberattacks. In fact, Cisco’s 2015 Annual Security Report named law firms as the seventh highest target for cybercriminals. October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, which is why now, more than ever, it is necessary to identify and resolve vulnerabilities within your firm.

WordCamp Ann Arbor – “It’s the Little Things”

I had the pleasure of traveling to my home state of Michigan this past weekend to attend, and speak at, WordCamp Ann Arbor.

#WCA2 was one of the most uniquely scheduled WordCamps I’ve been to this year. I wasn’t surprised because I’ve gotten to know Kyle Maurer, Lead Organizer, over the past six months and his passion for the community and doing things creatively is obvious.

One example of this was the music selection that played at the afterparty event. It was comprised of jazz music from all the artists that each version of WordPress was named after. This was just one of “the little things” that the title of this post refers to.

Ask a Security Professional: Content Delivery Networks — Part One: The Purpose

Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) have been the subject of many conversations for me lately. I think primarily because people are becoming more aware of just how significantly site speed can impact visitor turnover and SEO. With the ever-increasing complexity of interactive websites, server resources are being taxed more than ever; unfortunately, this is often at the cost of site speed. Generally, visitors have come to favor these more interactive features, increasing the demand for complex applications that require more resources. CDNs have become the favored choice to tip the scale of performance back in favor of speed.
