LISLE, IL--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2014) - More companies are facing unprecedented data security and privacy issues as they adopt new technology and embrace digital media. While large retailers command front page headlines, security breaches against small businesses with fewer than 250 employees have been steadily rising. To help small firms stay safe in this rapidly changing digital market, Protexure Lawyers, a competitive professional liability insurance program from AmerInst Professional Services, Ltd., has introduced a new tech security blog series. It is designed to educate solo practitioners and small law firms about potential risks, so they can take the proper steps to ensure that their practices are protected.
"As an insurance provider, we understand the correlation between protecting your client's valuable data and earning their trust. The reputation of your practice may be at stake if you fail to take basic security steps," says Kyle Nieman, President and Chief Executive Officer of AmerInst Professional Services, Ltd. "Studies show that companies are attacked an average of two million times a week across the world. These types of data breaches can result in loss of reputation, revenue, and billable hours. We have developed a tech blog series that focuses on firewall protection, password selection, encryption and other security measures that will help protect small law firms from liabilities in managing their businesses and servicing their clients."
