Steve Greenberg Offers Insights on Protecting Lawyers from Hackers

Daily Business Review

In an article published by the Daily Business Review, intellectual property and data privacy attorneys described the lengths they take to ensure their client information is protected from hackers.

Steve Greenberg, an Intellectual Property partner in Shutts & Bowen’s West Palm Beach office who travels extensively for his clientele throughout Asia, North America and Europe, described his use of a secure phone within a phone – a softphone, where all voice conversations are private. He also said he runs his own computer network protected by multiple layers of security, uses a secure text messaging service and buys his phones directly from the manufacturer so as to avoid spyware often deployed by the retailers themselves. When travelling abroad, Steve even carries a burner phone with nothing personally identifiable on it and relies upon a global mobile wireless access point for Internet access instead of public Wi-Fi.
