Top 3 Hints For Successful LinkedIn Networking
  • Keep it complimentary. Using LinkedIn to be combative with others only paints you in a negative light with everyone you or your connections are connected to.
  • Keep it fresh. Viewers of your profile can see the last three things you liked, posted, or commented on. Keep a fresh rotation of content and commentary to keep people coming back.
  • Keep it professional. Mixing your political or religious beliefs with your online business networking can be unappealing to some people and cause them not to explore you further professionally.

Real ransomware is generally not in an email. If you get a ransomware email, it's likely just a phishing expedition spam email trying to scare you into sending payment.

  • Run an anti-virus scan. Don't panic and don't pay!

People with LinkedIn accounts look to see who is viewing their profile (and you should, too). Sometimes simply looking at someone’s LinkedIn profile can be the catalyst for that person to decide to reach out to you directly, without you having to ask. Again, people with LinkedIn accounts look to see who is viewing their profile, and it is important to see and be seen in social media, the same way you would steal glances at a networking event or business cocktail party.

Hiring managers: Time kills all deals. Anything more than a week between final interview and written offer is simply too long in cyber or ESI, especially for sales talent. Let too much time pass and you will lose the talent.

TOP 3 Takeaways From ILTACON 2017
  • ESI is yesterday's news, but still legal technology's biggest money maker: The vendor floor remained flooded with discovery vendors, fewer than ever, but individually bigger than ever. The war for ESI supremacy is less about what makes a company different, and more about what a company is missing compared to its competitors. Those without global service capability, international review centers, dual Relativity and proprietary technology, audio/video search functionality, and strong project management will struggle to compete in today's climate.
  • Legal blockchain will be driven by in-house counsel at corporations: If you are looking for the next big thing in legal that has yet to be commoditized (or in this case barely tapped), look to blockchain. This simple term has deeply complex implications too dense to summarize here. Best way to get involved? Join CLOC or the Legal Blockchain Consortium. Both are in their inception phase of growth.
  • Legal technologists want to move into cybersecurity: The demand from talent to find pathways towards a career in cybersecurity is overwhelming. Few have made the transition successfully and only handfuls of people will do so in the coming years. Why? The transition will take time, patience, significant investment of time and money into additional training and education, and, perhaps most important, a willingness from employers to hire or promote talent with "learned skills" into roles where cyber/IG education can be put into practice, some for the first time.
