Description

For years now – since the dawn of email and the internet – lawyers have worried about the security of client confidential information in a digital world. With every passing year and every new technology tool, the world gets scarier. Viruses. Hackers. Ransomware. Phishing. Lost and stolen phones and laptops. Every cybersecurity seminar is just one long parade of horrible things that can happen.

Still, we lawyers do have ethical (and other) serious obligations to protect the sensitive information we have about their clients. The ABA and others have issued some ethics opinions and guidance. But can we get beyond just scary? Yes, we can.

Come take a 90-minute tour of (fairly) simple, very specific things any lawyer can do right now to be safer tomorrow.
