Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: Do Certified Legal Nurse Consultants Need or Want, to Encrypt Their Computer Data?

Good question, Tech Tipper Tom! Do you need to encrypt my legal nurse consulting business data to keep it away from prying eyes? My answer is “That depends.” If you’re using a desktop system for your legal nurse consulting business and there’s no one around but your immediate family, and if you believe you can trust them, there is no reason to encrypt the hard drive on your PC. But, if you share a desktop with your spouse and children and they have a habit of getting malware infestations, you may want to encrypt the data. If you’re a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant who uses a laptop computer only and who keeps the data on the local drive of that computer (versus on an external hard drive or server in your office) and who also travels with that computer or shares it – you may want to encrypt your data. The way I see it, even paranoids have real enemies, so if you feel you have the need to encrypt your data, you should. If you’re like me and are rolling your eyes at the thought, you don’t.

Thanks to all the CLNC consultants who attended the 2010 National Alliance of Certified Legal Nurse Consultants Conference in Nashville. I so loved hearing how much you learned from our speakers and keynote speaker, Genevieve Bos, editor of Pink magazine and seeing all you gained networking with your CLNC peers. It was a blast partying with you and Captain “Tom” Sparrow on the river dinner cruise. But my favorite part was getting to talk with so many of you. I love hearing your CLNC Success Stories and am so energized by them.

Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: Legal Nurse Consultant BlackBerry® Users Can Now Have a Mac Attack!

Those of you who know me well know that my supposed antipathy to Apple computers is an act. I think they’re some of the best computers on the market and some of the easiest to use. In the old days of steam-driven hard drives, there wasn’t much interoperability between Mac OS and Windows operating systems. Well, as time has rolled on my CLNC amigos – things have changed.

As a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant, Are You the Captain of Your Soul?

Tom and I saw the movie Invictus weeks ago and I’m still moved by the final words of the poem that the character, Nelson Mandela (played by Morgan Freeman), said kept him going. The poem, Invictus by William Ernest Henley, consists of just sixteen lines – but it’s the last two which captivate me most.
