Be on the lookout within the next few weeks for an announcement from Elijah relating to our upcoming 15th anniversary. It will be a great way for our clients to celebrate with us!
After a 25 year break, I am back to occasionally judging policy debate tournaments on the weekend. It’s fascinating to see the ways that the activity has evolved, and ways it has stayed the same. I never thought I would get back into the activity, but fortuitously my eldest son Elijah decided (on his own) to join the activity. There aren’t many better ways to train young minds how to think critically and strategically, and although all speech and debate activities are great, I am particularly partial to policy debate. The number of policy debaters who go on to be highly successful in their chosen fields – and they aren’t all attorneys – is amazing. I’m happy to have this new shared interest with my son, and to be able to give a little back to the activity that gave so much to me.
Bermuda-based law firm Appleby on October 21, 2017, disclosed that it in 2016 it had been the victim of a data security incident last year which involved some of its data having been compromised. Within the last several days, in what has become known as the Paradise Papers data breach (not to be confused with the similarly tropical Panama Papers incident involving a different firm), presumably highly sensitive and confidential client information has been leaked to the press and subsequently been made available for public consumption. Without addressing the substance of any particular disclosures, the fact that this breach took place and the evolving fall-out is yet another reminder that law firms need to make reasonable investments in data security in order to meet their duties to protect client confidences. Elijah Data Security LLC helps law firms and SMBs to identify efficient solutions to reduce the risk of such damaging incidents, including performing information security risk assessments, penetration testing, and cybersecurity consulting.
