Article Written by Sally Perkins

Enterprises can increase their revenue by 23% simply by relying on digital-first strategies that focus on achieving strategic business goals. Embracing digital transformation is an issue that has plagued companies in every single industry for over a decade now. One of the biggest aspects of this transformation is the shift to cloud-based enterprise solutions, and it’s no different for the legal industry. As cybersecurity myths continue to be debunked and data privacy rules change for the better, law firms and tech-savvy clients alike are seeing the benefits of cloud-based technology and reaping the benefits of it, too.

Addressing Issues Of Data Security

Cybersecurity and data privacy are two of the most pressing concerns that companies in the legal industry have when choosing whether or not to adopt cloud-based technology. In fact, when asked about this problem, 66% of respondents said that security is their biggest concern regarding adopting an enterprise cloud computing platform. However, law firms all around the world currently operate under strict, often very specific data security processes developed to protect sensitive data. Seeing as this is one industry in which professionals are groomed, from the beginning, to protect data at all costs, it is becoming more and more recognized that firms that have transitioned to a cloud-based solution are becoming better equipped at mitigating the associated risks. From growth management to business continuity and even up-to-date compliance regulations, cybersecurity concerns are being toppled by numerous benefits to both lawyers and their clients.

Are E-Scooters Vulnerable to Hackers?

By Hoofer

Article Written by Avery Phillips
 

You’ve most likely seen small clusters of electric scooters cropping up on your local sidewalks, seemingly overnight. These cheap and effective forms of transportation are especially popular in urban metropolitan areas where the "last mile problem" affects the ways people move through their day-to-day lives. However, these scooters come with their own problems. 

Much like any type of new technology, cybersecurity concerns seem to only be addressed once they’re raised as an issue. This means that the storage and transfer of user data may not be as safe as users think it is when they open the app to rent a scooter. It follows that if major corporate entities like Amazon or Sony can be hacked and have their information leaked, then naturally it can’t be that much more difficult to hack into the tiny brain of an electric scooter – especially since people have already figured out how to gut their wiring and batteries. 

While scooters can be great tools for getting around, it’s important to treat them with the reservations and caution that every new piece of technology usually deserves. There are still many bugs and user problems to be worked out as the scooter industry progresses. Here are a few things to pay attention to when it comes to your security and scooters.
