Simon Freeman, CEO of Fresh Skies, is a renowned email security expert on email encryption. Here in The Barrister magazine he urges the legal sector to show leadership in protecting confidential information. He says, “Discussion of criminal activity with a readership made almost entirely of legal professionals is a risky endeavor, one would think, but in fact I have found that the knowledge in this area amongst the barristers I have discussed these matters with is worryingly low.”
Speaking specifically about the concerns that the legal industry face in one of the industry’s leading publications, Simon highlighted the reasons for cyber crime being on the rise and what can be done to counteract it.
With so many of the legal profession being recipients of The Barrister magazine, this was a great platform for Simon to share his expertise and also a great benefit to the legal industry, for whom online confidentiality is such a crucial factor.
