Recently, I came across a LinkedIn post from a friend who was #Hiring for a cybersecurity role. It got me thinking - just how challenging is it to find and crucially, to retain, experienced cybersecurity staff? According to my friend, it is very challenging. Intrigued, I decided to take a dive into the numbers. 71% of organizations are currently unable to fill cybersecurity positions, leading to a concerning skills gap in the workforce. This issue has been highlighted by The World Economic Forum , which warns of the potential impact on infrastructure and society as a whole. Globally, there is an estimated 4 million person ...

Please enjoy this blog post co-authored by John Graves, Training Support Specialist, Winstead PC and Josh Moore, Director of Solutions Engineering, Govlnvest. Being a new associate can be stressful.

The legal industry is transforming at a blistering pace and legal tech startups are at the forefront of this disruption. Startups are newly established companies, typically less than 5 years ...

Please enjoy this blog post by Stephanie Carty, Senior Manager, Real Estate Practice Group. "I finally figured it out", my sister sighed into the phone. "It's ADHD." As frustrations around focus, time management, overwhelm and disorganization mounted, my sister was running out of patience. She is a talented attorney who is well liked and respected, but she has one major adversary: Herself. The fast paced and demanding day of a big law associate is challenging enough, but enduring additional unexplained focus and attention struggles can make the workload feel insurmountable. At the end of her rope, my sister sat for neurological testing, and the results ...

We currently use CodeTwo on our on-prem Exchange. We're in a Hybrid an moving fully (eventually) to Exchange Online. While C2 has an cloud version, their not based in the US, and support is sub-par. The good feature it has it can strip attachments from emails based on rules and put them in a network location; something that Exclaimer couldn't do at the time. Also,we have a lot of Out of Office rules for users that leave the company. We're not concerned about price, need an enterprise solution thats powerful and with great support. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Instead of re-writing standard provisions from memory or hunting through old documents, you have a centralized collection of pre-written and pre-approved legal clauses at your fingertips.
