I recently found a great article on the transformative effects of small changes and wanted to share some of the points that seemed most important. As well as add a little extra commentary. The Legal Technology article that I am referencing can be found here.
Yesterday we were honored to present at the Dallas ALA Business Partner Expo. We chose a topic that is near and dear to our hearts. The topic of Cybersecurity, as I've said before, is important and often overlooked.
Some of the key points that our CEO, John Alday, and CISO, Alex Morrow, made are listed below.
Cybersecurity is important and Cima will continue shouting that from the rooftops! Jumping right in with some alarming statistics - A Tripwire study centered around 306 IT professionals, in August 2018, finds that companies are falling short in risk management.
The topic of stress, and how to handle it, came to mind after reading another interesting blog post from Law Technology Today (LTT). I think many of us struggle with that "work-life balance" concept from time to time. This term has been used to describe the balance that an individual needs between time allocated for work and other aspects of life.
Grabbing some inspiration from this blog post by LTT, I've decided to talk about social media presence in today's world, Legal Firms, and a shameless plug of our Managed Services.
Social media is a key branding tool for marketing your business, especially in today's digital world.
This blog post is a combination of a legal technology opportunity and related news. Sometimes you just need to get a lot out on the table, so here we are.
Legal Technology Opportunity:
Recently I read about a really neat opportunity for students. With this offering, students collaborate with a not-for-profit organization to identify common legal problems that can be answered through a series of structured questions.
Each week I plan to share my "Top 3" preferences of Legal/Technology articles. For the week of Jan 14-18, my curated list is seen below.

Why do Legal Firms need Cloud Storage?
Lawyers have a busy schedule, with meetings, court dates, case reviews, and so on. They have plenty of tasks to complete, people to see, and places to go. While lawyers must be cautious about new technology, the most popular cloud storage platforms, such as Box, Dropbox, and Google Drive, have proven to be secure and efficient for storing, synchronizing, and sharing.

How to Dispose of Tech:
"As a legal professional, it’s important to keep tabs on new tech investments that could make your workflow more efficient, meet client needs and position your law practice as being well-positioned for the future.
With the amount of content being created and posted on the internet every day, it is really important for companies to join in on the cyber action. Marketing is about making sure your particular audience sees you, knows what you have to offer, and feels comfortable interacting with whatever you're aiming to sell.
