A pre-recorded streaming VIDEO replay of one session from the September 2017 live seminar, How to Maximize Legal Technology in Your Office: Practicing Efficiently and Ethically.

Rule of Professional Conduct 1.6(d) stipulates that lawyers must make reasonable efforts to prevent the disclosure of confidential client information. Comment 19 to the same rule requires lawyers to act reasonably to safeguard client information; Comment 20 states that "[l]awyers have an ethical obligation to implement reasonable information security practices to protect the confidentiality of client data"; and Comment 21 explains that "[b]ecause of evolving technology, and associated evolving risks, law firms should keep abreast on an ongoing basis of reasonable methods for protecting client confidential information." In view of these rules, it's hard to argue that doing nothing to protect client data would meet the standard. The good news is that you don't have to be a security expert or techie to protect client data, yourself, and your office. In this session, you will learn how to establish best practices in your office, and discover the inexpensive (or free) tools that will ensure your confidential information remains confidential.
