*ETHICS CLE OFFERED





Law firm cybersecurity and the ethics that surround that topic have evolved since COVID-19 changed the way in which we practiced law. This webinar will give you current stats related to cybersecurity since the pandemic began, discuss in depth the ethics rules involved in cybersecurity in a work-from-home environment and offer practical and budget-friendly tips for making this new environment secure.

In 2019, we were lecturing about the security of law firm networks – now we also must consider the security of home networks – and often, the use of home machines which are not protected by the law firm network. Ethic rules require lawyers to take competent and reasonable measures to secure their confidential data. What measures are reasonable during a pandemic? How can law firms use policies, procedures and technology to shore up their defenses? Feel free to ask questions of our veteran cybersecurity experts!
