Is your password weak or compromised?

Hacker intrusion and ransom ware is now a major threat to all businesses.  The risk of attack has grown exponentially as criminals follow the money online.  Legal Practices are especially vulnerable – our systems allow collaborative and remote access, and our reputation is intimately bound to our ability to protect client confidentiality.  Passwords are the key to the network, and bad password habits are both common and dangerous.

Both commercially and for ethical reasons, Law Practices must face up to hacking risks - good password policies and staff education is an excellent start.
