Social media, data protection and cybersecurity best practice

It can be a struggle to understand the nature of social media. The top ten law firms in the UK think that cyber threats are a major concern when using social media platforms.

Peter Wright and Kayleigh Leonie discuss best practice on social media and explain data and connection security.

This podcast covers use of social media by law firms, personal social media use by staff, passwords and daisy-chaining, and wi-fi and remote working.
