About

Ever since law firms began using computers, there have been concerns about whether attorneys must or should use special security measures, like encryption, to protect confidential and sensitive information. Changes in ethical and procedural rules, including the requirements that lawyers must (1) be technologically competent, and (2) redact court filings, highlight the need for lawyers to be proactive when handling everything from email to smart phones to their office technology.

This program will explore and provide practical tips about attorneys’ duties to safeguard electronic communications, including:

  • Competence and confidentiality in the use of technology
  • Ethical and legal duties for handling electronic data
  • What is encryption, and how and when to use it
  • Threats to the security of electronic data and communications
  • An easy to understand explanation of encryption
  • Options for securing electronic data and communications
  • How and when attorneys may use unencrypted email and when they must take special security precautions when required by a client, by rule, by law, or when the nature of the information requires a higher degree of security
  • Practical tips to safeguard confidential and sensitive data
