March 2019 Soto’s Chronicles
Protecting your most valuable asset — your family
FROM THE DESK OF DeDe Soto
March Madness, St. Patty’s Day, and more! We all have a we bit of Irish in us during the month of March. I am so ready for some spring weather, and I’m sure you are too! We are still having our workshops and would love to see you, your family, and your friends at any one of them. Unfortunately, we have been in court over the past couple of months with trust disputes involving families that either failed to plan or did not keep their estate planning documents current and are now facing disputes over trust terms and administration. These plans were not done by the Soto Law Group. These were plans prepared by do-it-yourselfers, online services, or attorneys who did not stay in contact with their clients. Make sure your family has peace of mind with an estate plan done correctly. Come to our workshops to learn how to plan properly.

In a time when digital threats exist in unprecedented abundance, this kind of thinking couldn’t be more dangerous —or irresponsible. After all, underinvesting in IT doesn’t just put you at a disadvantage to your tech-savvy competitors; it also calls the very future of your organization into question. When a Fortune 500 company gets hacked, they shell out millions of dollars and make headlines. But when an unprotected small business comes under serious fire by cybercriminals, it often collapses quickly —without fanfare or much of a fight. This is why poor cybersecurity“represents an especially pernicious threat to smaller businesses,” SEC Commissioner Luis A. Aguilar said in 2015.“The reason is simple:”he wrote,“small and midsize businesses are not just targets of cybercrime; they are its principal target.” With that in mind, it’s essential that you do everything you can to protect yourself and your employees from cyberattacks. Here are three things you can do today to strengthen your network security and prevent a crisis. 2WAYS TO IMPROVEYOUR CYBERSECURITYNOW, NOT LATER B atten D own the H atches — or F ace the C onsequences
