How Will Your Outdated Technology Hurt You?

The guys discuss some of the myriad issues related to outdated tech, from global down to personal levels, and then bring the topic home to lawyers to explain how to stay on top of your firm’s technology maintenance and replacement planning.
Later, Dennis and Tom, talk through the recent LastPass debacles and what you should do when a tool you’ve relied on is no longer meeting your needs.
As always, stay tuned for the parting shots, that one tip, website, or observation that you can use the second the podcast ends.
