Colorado Law takes our ethical obligations seriously to protect the confidential client data for our legal clinics. In theory, this is straightforward, but in practice it is a real challenge when faced with protecting this data across 120 practicing student attorneys with limited resources. Join Colorado Law’s Clinical Programs Manager and Senior IT Director for a look at the past, present, and future of their Secure Desktop solution.
After trying everything from a shared network drive, encrypting student devices, and VMWare we found success at last with a terminal services remote desktop solution utilizing a browser-based client using Ericom’s AccessNow technology. Each of our student attorneys have access to their own secure desktop within their web browser across any device. Complexity is the enemy to good security and this simple solution has significantly increased our adoption.
This session will outline our secure desktop infrastructure and we will consider the challenges we faced from both the clinical program manager and IT perspectives.
