We are back from a busier than ever ILTA LegalSEC Summit. People attend LegalSEC to genuinely learn how they can keep their law firms protected. This is no easy feat because cybersecurity is a moving target. While Big Law firms participate, there is great value for small and medium sized firms where there might not be a CISO. The Director of IT or network engineer might be the security department. The two or three days at LegalSEC are packed with information.
This year the well-received keynote by William R. Evanina, Director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, was recorded. Another popular session was “Leverage These Free Resources to Up Your Security and Governance Game.” Both of these and several other LegalSEC 2019 sessions can be heard at no cost by ILTA members, here.
Heads up, save the date. Next year’s LegalSEC Summit 2020 will be June 1-3 and the location…San Antonio at the Marriott Riverwalk. If you have visited the Riverwalk you know that this is a fantastic location. Hope to see you there.
and we are a sponsor again this year. We will be at Table number one showing LINK’s latest mobile DLP features.

LegalSEC Summit 2019 is designed for technology professionals at every level who manage security, information governance and data privacy tech projects and initiatives in support of the practice of law. This exciting two-day Summit offers premier learning and a connected networking environment to focus on information security challenges faced by the legal industry.
As someone who takes a LOT of screenshots – we make a mobile
app – I am a fan of a set of features in iOS known as AssistiveTouch. With
AssistiveTouch, you can create a virtual button on your screen. Tap the floating
virtual button on your screen to accomplish one of 25 actions. For example, you
can set the menu to take a Screenshot, go to Home, Pinch to zoom, Mute, or Speak
Screenshot, Home, or 23 other actions
Let’s start with my favorite usage. To take a screenshot on
an iOS device, at least for a klutz like me, takes two hands. You must press
the Home and Power buttons simultaneously. I must pick up the device to get the
angles right to press both buttons with both hands. But when I use the AssistiveTouch
virtual button then I simply use one finger to tap the virtual button, then tap
Screenshot. The screenshot is snapped, and I’m on to the next screen.

We talked to DocsCorp about our integration of their high fidelity Word document comparison in our LINK app. We used their compareDocs SDK. It was a success for us and for our legal clients. This post is from their blog site.
Picture this: you are a lawyer who relies heavily on your devices to work outside of office hours. Perhaps you use the morning commute to fire off emails from your smartphone, or maybe you use your tablet on the couch after everyone has gone to bed and the house is finally quiet. While working on these devices, you use a secure app made especially for legal professionals. It has everything you need – access to your document management system, advanced search, Word editing and annotation, and document comparison.
I’m a current events junkie. I’ll admit it. And I work with law firms. Thus, my favorite podcast? “Stay Tuned with Preet.” Yes, this is Preet Bharara, the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Check out an episode. Preet takes a few questions about the law at the beginning of each episode. Then he has a guest. Preet is not only smart, but surprisingly personable. It’s a fast-moving hour.
A recent guest was John P. Carlin, former Assistant Attorney General for the National Security Division at the Department of Justice and Chief of Staff to Robert Mueller at the FBI. He is currently a partner with Morrison & Foerster. Carlin is an international cybersecurity expert.
One of the things which caught my attention in this episode was Carlin’s story of the US subsidiary of a German company whose data was stolen by hackers in the Chinese military. The company, SolarWorld, in Hillsboro, Oregon, made solar energy components.
How was the data stolen? Email. Carlin said, “Email. It is the least protected part of the system, usually. Not like Intellectual Property which is encrypted or where special measures are taken to protect it. They stole email traffic.”

Mobile devices are constantly transacting with sensitive corporate data. Historically, most of that traffic is emails and email attachments. Increasingly, attorneys want to do more on their mobile devices, including annotating and editing documents. Much time and energy has been invested in DLP on the desktop, but what is the state of the art in mobile?
