We’re an official NetDocuments ISV Partner!

We’ve been a NetDocuments partner for years. Recently, with Leonard Johnson heading up their partner ecosystem, NetDocuments have formalized their NetDocuments ISV Partner Program. We have used their REST APIs to give NetDocuments users access to their documents and their email in the same encrypted container app, LINK. NetDocuments is committed to the platform approach wherein both Independent Software Vendors and NetDocuments customers can develop solutions for optimizing their workflows using the REST APIs.

It’s easy to review, compare, annotate, file, and email documents all within our LINK app. LINK also offers a managed integration with the Microsoft Office apps for editing on an iPad or smartphone.

Mobile Document Review with the LINK Viewer

For easy and secure document review, we have integrated our own document viewer in our LINK app. When you tap on a document name in LINK, it automatically opens in the LINK document viewer. LINK renders all documents as a PDF for high fidelity to the original. If there are Tracked Changes or redlines in the document, they are rendered as well. Or, you can elect to accept them and view a clean copy of the document.

ILTA LegalSEC Summit 2019 Redux

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.

Is Your Email Vulnerable? Ask the Chinese Military

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.”

What Can You Do With the LINK App?

If a picture is worth a thousand words then a video is worth a few thousand?

Our LINK app is so visual that we like to SHOW what it does. This video shows how LINK enables workflows for lawyers, especially document comparison and annotation.

Our CEO in CSO: Ripped from the headlines – are your messages secure in these encrypted apps?

In the investigations of Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen, the FBI has retrieved messages from Signal, Telegram and WhatsApp. While there are weaknesses inherent in all of these apps, the question remains: What does a good data protection scheme look like?

 

A few days ago, the FBI revealed that Michael Cohen’s messages sent with Signal and WhatsApp are now available as evidence in the on-going investigation into his various dealings. While thousands of emails and documents have already been recovered from Cohen’s devices, home, hotel room, and office, the recovery of data from messaging apps that promise end-to-end encryption is surprising. One would presume that end-to-end message encryption should ensure that those messages are unrecoverable without assistance from Mr. Cohen. However, clearly that is not the case.
