The Benefits and Dangers of Using Portable Devices
with Dr. Gavin W. Manes

Mobile technology is a necessity for most attorneys today, including technologies such as laptops, mobile devices (PDAs, smart phones, etc.), portable storage (external hard drives, USB drives, DVDs and CDs, etc.), and remote access. It is easier today than ever before for attorneys to take their offices on the road – to client’s locations, courtrooms, hotel rooms, and attorneys’ homes. This technology provides great benefits for attorneys, but it also presents great risk. Laptops, mobile devices and portable media can be easily lost, stolen or compromised. This can result in breaches of confidentiality or loss of data. The speaker will explore:

  • Information security basics
  • Laptop and portable device security
  • Encryption
  • Remote access and connecting wirelessly
  • Secure disposal 

Speaker: Dr. Gavin W. Manes, Avansic: E-Discovery & Digital Forensics

Date & Time:  Friday, August 2, 2013 from 12 - 1 pm

Location:  NOBA Conference Room, 650 Poydras Street, Suite 1505, New Orleans
