WeComply, Inc., a leader in web-based ethics and compliance training for corporate employees, has released a new course on "Information Security Awareness" developed specifically for law firms. This course trains employees to recognize data-security threats and provides guidelines for handling confidential information, thus better enabling firms to meet their client-confidentiality obligations.
This 30-minute course covers online activities, mobile security, removable devices and working remotely. The course also discusses protecting client confidentiality, cleansing files of hidden data (metadata) and creating strong passwords. Other topics covered include phishing, social engineering and incident reporting.
“Firms have a duty to their clients and the legal community to safeguard the confidentiality of the information they handle,” said Mike Pallatta, WeComply CEO, “and the use of electronic devices as a primary means of communication and information-sharing poses serious data-security risks. Our 'Information Security Awareness' course trains law-firm employees to recognize information-security threats and respond in ways that can help their firms avoid or minimize the serious problems that security breaches can bring.”
