Encryption in Video Conferencing

End-to-End Encryption (E2EE) as we generally think of it protects our communications from any third party while it is moving between us and the other user we are communicating with. It’s difficult even for State actors to discern the contents of a truly E2EE communication. That’s why it is so useful, and at the same time, can be so dangerous. True E2EE, at this time, is about as secure as you can get with a communication. If you’re sending the nuclear codes from one person to another, you better make sure your connection is E2EE. In this article, we talk with Graham Nelson-Zutter, of Corvum.io, about the basics of E2EE in video conferencing.

Video Conferencing Concerns for Attorneys

Lately, law offices all over the country have been turning to video conferencing to meet with clients, talk to teammates in their offices, and even attend remote hearings. But with the speedy move to these tools, I’d venture to guess that some of us are outside of our comfort zones, now. That’s okay.

As I imagine you know one of the biggest bang-for-your-buck efficiency tools for the modern office (or even the not-so-modern office) is the template. Pretty obvious, right? I’m not the first person to sing the template’s praises, and I’m certainly not the last. But if for some reason, you weren’t privy to this, you need […]

Email Encryption

Why aren’t you encrypting the email that you send to your clients? I mean, c’mon, at least the communications that contain legal advice and sensitive personal data. You wouldn’t let an unrelated third-party rifle through your file room each night, would you? That’d be ridiculous and unethical, and ridiculously unethical (or unethically ridiculous, I can’t […]

Data Backups

Data Back-ups and Due Care Let’s talk about safeguarding client files and how advancements in technology are changing what due care means. First off, let’s not be unreasonable, we, as lawyers, don’t have an obligation to incorporate every single emerging technology into our practices. That’d be overwhelming, and likely wouldn’t be financially beneficial to anyone […]

Many padlocks on a cable.

Basics: As lawyers and legal professionals, most of us understand that we are entrusted with a lot of sensitive information about our clients. And, generally, we know how to protect it.

The Value of Intuition

Artificial Intelligence in the Legal Field I don’t know about you, but when someone tells me that Artificial Intelligence will take the job of a lawyer, I usually assume they don’t understand the legal industry. Sure, computers can replace some of the clerical tasks we do, but AI can’t competently replace a lawyer. It can’t […]
