Facebook is an extremely powerful advertising tool, but there are right ways and wrong ways to harness that power. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t use it for business-relevant posts. It just means that you cannot use it to spam the wrong messages. Before posting or promoting anything, ask yourself if you would want to see something like it on your news feed if it was from a different industry.

Cybersecurity And Privacy Specialists In Short Supply

Cybersecurity And Privacy Specialists In Short Supply | chainsawreviews.biz | Scoop.it

A cover story in the Los Angeles Daily Journal (subscription required) reported that the need for privacy and cybersecurity legal specialists has exploded in California, yet general counsel say there is a shortage of qualified practitioners who can do the job.  LinkedIn Corp.’s General Counsel Erika Rottenberg was featured in the story, she speculated that technology companies in Silicon Valley were hiring most of the qualified attorneys, leaving less talent for law firms.  Amidst a legal job market in which law graduates are clamoring to find jobs, the demand for privacy and cybersecurity specialists may present an opportunity for the law schools that are nimble enough to respond to the demand.

 

The demand for lawyers who understand technology isn’t limited to general counsel positions, even sophisticated technology companies say they need outside counsel.

Guillaume | chainsawreviews.biz | Scoop.it

Guillaume is our CEO & co-founder. Good thing Scoop.it keeps him busy or he’d spent way too much time playing video games or skiing off-piste in Tahoe.

His previous business, Musiwave, was a pioneer of mobile music back in the early 2000's, introducing many of the first hit products in that market. He grew it into the leader of its space, powering the music platforms of major mobile operators worldwide, before it was eventually acquired by Microsoft in 2007.

After graduating from Polytechnique in France, Guillaume earned a Master's degree from Stanford University back in '95.
