April 2017 Topic: “Ransomware and your Law Firm, How to Protect Yourself” – Presented by Gordon Einstein.

Ransomware is a current and active threat which can affect both your law practice, and also your clients. Learn about the nature of the threat, how an actual ransomware attack unfolds, how to recover from such an attack AND how to proactively prevent such attacks. Also, learn how to advise your clients about mitigating and avoiding ransomware attacks in such a manner as sets you apart from other professionals.

About the hike:

In the 1950s, San Vicente Mountain served as a mountaintop military installation to defend Los Angeles from soviet missile attacks. Today, the 1,960-foot peak provides visitors with a look back at this chapter in the city’s history, along with a great view of West LA and the Santa Monica Mountains. Westridge Fire Road leads to San Vicente Mountain and is a popular path for mountain bikers, trail runners, and dog walkers (dogs are permitted off-leash in Westridge-Canyonback Wilderness Park under their owner’s supervision). The hike is about 7 miles and provides 730 feet of elevation gain.

After enjoying San Vicente Mountain, we will return the way we came to complete this 7.4-mile hike with 730 feet of elevation gain. Friends and Dogs are welcome. No fee or permit is required, so get out and enjoy!

Directions:

The trailhead is at the southern end of Reseda Boulevard. From 101, take Reseda exit and go south from the freeway. Drive past the Braemar County Club all the way to the end of Reseda Blvd. You can park at the very end in the paid portion of the parking or a little below where you don’t have to pay.

When: February 19, 2017; 9 a.m.
Where: Top of Reseda Trailhead, Tarzana, CA 91356
Difficulty: Easy to Moderate
Length: about 7 miles
Dog Allowed: Yes!
Brunch Meet Place: We usually meet for brunch after the hike. Location TBD.

What Our Members Say

  • Mauricio Leon de la Barra Mexico and California Attorney at Law

    “TEN can be described in TEN words: An extraordinary source of referrals, resources and very good friends. I got my first referral a few days after my first meeting. Its members have always provided my clients with outstanding legal solutions in different areas of law. And I have the honor of considering each member a very good friend.”

  • larry-rothsteinLarry A. Rothstein, Esq. Trial Lawyer & Civil Litigator

    “Although I have been a member of other professional networking organizations, David’s idea of one limited to small and solo law firms is both unique and exciting. Many of us in small and solo practices have developed expertise in limited practice areas. This makes for a particular dynamic because we are able to refer clients with specific needs to those having the specialized skills to handle them.”

  • cynthia-elkinsCynthia Elkins Employment Law

    “Have been a member of TEN since its inception. It is a wonderful and very cost efficient resource for solos and attorneys from small firms as this is my primary referral source both for receiving referrals and giving out referrals and this wonderful group of members helps to expand my referral base.”
