Many lawyers and paralegals are unfamiliar with the nuances of computer technology and data security essential to comply with 21st century ethics rules in our digital world. There are many hidden dangers in frequently used tools and platforms, including e-mail, social-media and “the Cloud.”
The ethical dangers and minefields are compounded and heightened by increased use of digital tools and internet connections in the practice of law, including the use of Zoom and other digital meeting platforms, working from home over the internet and using Alexa and other digital devices.
Since lawyers and law firms are prime targets of hackers, all lawyers and paralegals must be vigilant as to client data and firm/department technology resources. This information is critical for lawyers to become more sophisticated in risk management in various technology contexts.
The webinar presentation will assist lawyers and law firm paralegals and legal departments to identify and avoid or minimize the risks in our increasingly digital world, many of which they may not be aware. The presentation will also provide suggested solutions and best practices.
