Who should attend: Lawyers and staff who want to understand their ethical obligations to protect client data in a digital age and who are tired of feeling scared that they're not doing enough to protect client information; lawyers and staff who want to understand the array of tools available for wireless, email, PC, tablet, and phone encryption and are interested in establishing internal security policies.
Learning level: All levels
The Law Society Rules require a lawyer to make "reasonable arrangements" to prevent the disclosure of confidential client information. Furthermore, "reasonable precautions" must be taken to prevent client information from falling into the wrong hands. In a digital world, the exact meaning of "reasonable arrangements" and "reasonable precautions" may be subject to debate; however, it's hard to argue that doing nothing to protect client data would meet the standard. You don't have to be a security expert or techie to protect yourself and your office. Learn how to cover all the bases of computer, smartphone, tablet, email, wireless, and document encryption. We'll also cover the fundamentals of backing up your electronic data. Half the battle is simply knowing what questions to ask and it's not nearly as complicated as it sounds. Establish best practices in your office and discover the inexpensive or free tools that will make sure your confidential information remains confidential.
