Encryption
with Abid Hussain 

"Practical Day-to-Day Encryption for Lawyers"

As more and more of our lives and law practices have moved to the Cloud, protecting and encrypting our data and our client's data is a hot-button topic. How do we keep sensitive information safe when much of it, including emails, documents, account numbers, other critical pieces of data are sitting on multiple servers around the world? 

Join attorney Abid Hussain for a discussion on how to use basic encryption for your day-to-day practice and communication. We will cover:
1. What is encryption?
2. How do we encrypt emails?
3. How do we encrypt files stored in the cloud?
4. What are the pros and cons of encryption? Is there such a thing as too much encryption?
5. A balanced approach to encryption in our law practice.
