Who Are The
Why Was BobaGuard
One day we had a close call with a client.
It scared the crap out of me as I realized just how close our biggest client, a leading South Texas law firm, with a strong reputation as civil litigators, had been to experiencing a data breach.
We always told ourselves security was a top priority –but this day we realized we had to do more.
It all started in 2006, when I started helping lawyers with their Apple technology. It stuck and I’ve been doing it ever since.
Over the years I became keenly aware many took a lackadaisical approach to security. At the time I was only working with Mac users, and there was a general notion that Macs were safe and didn’t need security measures. Heck, I’d be lying if I didn’t believe the same when I started in 2006.
For the past 14 years, my company, GlobalMac IT, has specialized in providing complete end-to-end IT services to law firms using Apple computers. As part of our Managed Service offering, we are in charge of their security.
However, that close call with our client was a splash of cold water in my face. We had to accept that we were not doing enough and had to do more to address the evolving cyber threats and I drastically changed our approach to security.
I found most solos were simply too busy to learn deeply enough about the threats posed to them. They often believed they were too small to be a target, or that using secure passwords and 2 Factor Authentication was enough to meet their security needs.
