In this episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with experienced online mediator and attorney, Jean Lawler, about the importance of awareness and taking precautions in light of the significant threats to cybersecurity and privacy online.

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, and as many professionals, including attorneys and dispute resolution practitioners have moved online, the risk of a security and/or privacy break has increased exponentially. The key to protecting both our personal and professional private materials and information is awareness of the challenges and taking steps to insure protection. Jean Lawler, herself a long-time (40+ year) attorney and mediator with expertise in the insurance industry, recently was certified as a Certified Information Privacy Professional, a designation held by only a handful of mediators nationwide. She shares the top challenges we face as well as her tips for making your practices and protocols more secure in this episode. The cost of a breach can be catastrophic so take a moment to listen today!
