As recent cyber incidents targeting CEOs have demonstrated, cyber attacks are now a constant emerging threat for all types of businesses and as a result the demand for managed services for law firms.
Roughly 80% of companies reported experiencing cybersecurity-related incidents last year alone, costing businesses approximately $3.62 million per breach.
Natural disasters like Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael remind us of the importance of building data recovery plan for law firms: managed services providers keep you in business – rain or shine.
October is Cyber-Security awareness month. In lieu of all the recent hurricane activities, in this article we’re diving into data recovery and data disaster planning for law firms. You won’t want to miss our upcoming webinar, Cyber Fortress: Protecting Your Data Empire — check it out here!

“Can I just move all my stuff to G Suite? I’ve heard its free.”
That’s a question I hear often, but the answer is more complicated than you would think.
While G Suite (formerly known as Google Apps) may be the perfect fit for some businesses, it is a huge mistake for others (regardless of the cost). And in many cases, businesses don’t figure this out until they have been tortured by their “Google Suite Authorized Reseller” for a few months.
From an IT perspective, here are some points to consider when evaluating whether or not G Suite is a smart move for your business.
Technology is redefining our world. Over the course of just 40 years, we’ve seen technology develop at lightning speed. Technology has evolved from academia, to home computers, to e-commerce, to social media, to the cloud, and now to artificial intelligence.
Many industries have quickly adopted the latest and greatest technology has to offer, for fear of losing a competitive advantage. But others, like the healthcare industry, have been slower to integrate technology into the workplace, especially cloud-based technology.
Cloud integration offers many benefits, but there are also risks that raise major concerns for healthcare professionals. It begs the question, is cloud technology a smarter solution or a headache waiting to happen?
Cloud technology is where majority of businesses are turning to store their data these days, and it makes sense why. With easier access, lower storage costs and a platform for sharing information globally, there are advantages to be had to moving to the cloud. But we can’t think about cloud technology in a vacuum. If we talk cloud, we’ve also got to talk security too.
As you evaluate cloud deployments for your organization and integrate the technology into your business operations, be sure you’ve considered all aspects of what it means to work in and store data from the cloud.
