Essential tech skills for law students http://lawiscool.com/2008/12/10/essential-tech-skills-for-law-students/ http://lawiscool.com/2008/12/10/essential-tech-skills-for-law-students/#comments Wed, 10 Dec 2008 15:37:13 +0000 http://lawiscool.com/?p=1165 David Canton continues a discussion of essential tech skills for lawyers on Slaw.

In addition to my comment to his post, I suggest learning to back your data up. USB keys and external hard drives don’t cut it. Back up your data off-site over the Internet to protect against hardware failure, fire, flood, or theft.

Make sure the backup provider encrypts your data both in transit and on their servers. I use Amazon S3 with the Jungle Disk client software. It’s not free but it’s cheap.

I wouldn’t trust free services when it comes to data anyway.
