Editor's Note

SECURITY is one of the most persistent sources of anxiety for attorneys adopting technology tools into their practices. There's good reason for worry. Hackers delight in wreaking havoc in cyberspace. From the annoying (despite vigilance, I've twice been tricked by AOL Trojan Horses) to the malicious (viruses that can shut down entire networks), malfeasance IS out there.

In this issue, we explore ways you can protect your systems. Wayne Spivak explains firewalls, filter packets and proxy servers. Michael Rothman gives an overview of PKI "public key" technology. Finally, we offer a roundup of security products and services.

I'm also delighted to introduce three new members of our Editorial Advisory Board: Ed Siebel, a solo and Mac expert from Balboa Island, Calif.; Andrew Adkins III, chair of ABA Techshow, from Gainesville, Fla.; and Albert Barsocchini, chair of the State Bar of California's Law Practice Management and Technology section, from San Anselmo, Calif.

As always, we welcome your letters, comments, suggestions and press releases, at lawtech@amlaw.com.

Cordially,
Monica Bay
