As lawyers, we have ethical and professional obligations to protect client data. Are you clear on what those obligations are? Confidential data in computer and information systems faces greater security threats today than ever before — and it’s part of your practice to appreciate where the threats come from, what the problems are, how to respond to breaches and how to advise clients on all of these issues. The wealth of confidential data maintained in lawyers’ computers and information systems today makes safeguarding client data part of the regular practice of law. The panel will discuss these professional and ethical issues.
