About the Program

This program will focus on the ever-expanding range of risks that lawyers in any type of firm face as a result of cybercrime, including online theft, e-mail compromise and ransomware, as well as errors in IT use and implementation, both in-office and in remote work. The panel will explain current and emerging statutory, ethical, and contractual concerns and provide common sense suggestions for fulfilling those obligations and attendant client expectations. Practical, real-world advice will be offered on basic security precautions and preparations, insurance options, and cooperation with the government. No prior technical experience or aptitude necessary.

You Will Learn

  • How to shield your own and your clients’ confidences, personal data, and funds from cyber-threats
  • How to comply effectively and efficiently with legal and ethical obligations to detect and remediate cyber-security incidents
