Cyberthreats against attorneys and law firms, including attacks such as ransomware and phishing, are at an all-time high and continue to grow. These threats are of particular concern for attorneys because of their duties of competence in technology and their ethical obligation to maintain confidentiality. This session will explore the most current threats and attorneys’ duties to safeguard confidential data and will offer practical solutions on how to comply with these duties, whether in a traditional or a hybrid practice.

Recorded at the Estate and Elder Law Symposium in February 2023.
