Legal Tech StartUp Focus Podcast

Welcome to the Legal Tech StartUp Focus podcast from your podcast host, Charlie Uniman. 

On this podcast, I'll be interviewing the people who build, invest in, comment on and use the apps made by LegalTech startups.

My guests and I will be discussing many different startup-related topics, covering, among other things, startup management and startup life, startup investing, pricing and revenue models and the factors that affect how users decide to purchase legal tech.

We’re not going to focus on legal tech per se - instead, we’ll be focusing on the startups that develop, market and sell that tech.

So, whether you’re a startup founder or investor, a lawyer or other legal professional or a law professor, law student or commentator who thinks about legal tech startups — sit back, listen and learn from my guests about just what it takes for legal tech startups to succeed.

And if you’re interested in legal tech startups and enjoyed this podcast, please become a member of Legal Tech StartUp Focus, free online that I mentioned at the outset of this introduction, by signing up at

Episode 13 of the Legal Tech StartUp Focus Podcast -- Interview with Alexander Sverlov of Atlant Security

In this episode, Charlie Uniman, your host of the Legal Tech StartUp Focus Podcast (, interviews cybersecurity expert, Alexander Sverdlov,
co-founder of Atlant Security (

After a brief discussion of Alex's professional background, Alex gets right down to offering practical ( and immediately actionable) cybersecurity tips for working from home during the COVID 19 lockdown (and for working from anywhere outside an office when the lockdown is finally lifted). These tips include (i) video conferencing protections (including a discussion of both the now popular Zoom video conferencing tools and also Zoom alternatives), (ii) putting cyber protections in place to secure wifi use (including the use of a VPN ("virtual private network") for outside-the-office work), (iii) the importance of insuring the security of one's personal computer (including steps to take to do so), (iv) the oft-neglected security of whatever browser is being used on one's personal computer (citing, especially, the broader protections that ad-blocking browser extensions offer beyond just blocking ads themselves), (v) password and user name cybersecurity "hygiene" (using a password manager and two-factor authentication) and (vi) advice to legal tech startups to architect security at the very outset of the development of their legal tech applications.
