Ethically Developing A Law Firm Security Game Plan

Program Number: 30291

Program Date: 12/17/2020


Increasingly, law firms face the challenge of developing a comprehensive game plan to defend against the myriad of cyber threats ever-present in today’s world. Attorneys themselves, pursuant to ABA Model Rule 1.1, are called upon to act reasonably and promptly to stop data breaches and mitigate damage resulting from the breach. Similarly, Model Rule 1.6 calls for lawyers to make reasonable efforts to prevent the inadvertent or unauthorized disclosure of, or unauthorized access to, information relating to the representation of a client. To help mitigate risk, this program will discuss areas such as end user security training, the importance of executing backup drills, key elements of a proper law firm defensive infrastructure, advice for remote working scenarios and other topics.
