Webinar: Legal Ethics in the Age of Cyber Security, Hacking and Scams
Digital information is everywhere. Lawyers and clients generate, receive, and store electronic communications and files daily which is vulnerable to attacks. Lawyers must be competent in the use of electronic information and must maintain client confidences whenever they deal with such data, whether in litigation or otherwise. Lawyers must be aware of current technological advances needed to protect client and firm information. The duties of competence and confidentiality also must be taken into consideration when attorneys use social media for, among other things, conducting investigations. Attorneys must also understand the importance of taking reasonable steps to safeguard the security of data. This CLE program will examine the ethical obligations of attorneys as they practice law in the “cyber security” age.
