Secure Yourself by Using Two-Step Verification on These 16 Web Services - How-To Geek. This is a great how to article for lawyers who use the web in their practice. Many of today's cloud services provide really useful access to the information we need to practice law. However, a simple user name and password are not sufficient protection for that data. What can a web lawyer do? The next step to keep your data safe in the cloud is to require two steps of authentication for access. That means that, after entering a user name and password, the site will require a second step for access. Generally, this involves sending an access code to a device in your physical possession, like your smart phone. When I access these sites, I get a text message with the code, which I then enter at the site for access to my data. If that sounds like a real pain, it is. However, it makes it almost impossible for a hacker to gain access to your confidential data in the cloud. It is a safe bet that you are using some of these services in your practice. Set up two step authentication now.
