Cybersecurity 101 - What Lawyers Need to Know About Protecting Data in Today's Digital World and Your Ethical Duties

Clients are concerned about trusting their information to lawyers, and even demanding that their law firms go through security audits to ensure that every possible safeguard is in place to protect their intellectual property, financial data, and/or health information. This session will ensure you have a basic awareness of the security practices that all lawyers should be following in their respective firms to comply with the Rules of Professional Conduct.

Law in Motion - How to Practice Ethically and Effectively on Mobile Devices

Lawyers can work from anywhere today with the prevalence of mobile devices. As long as you have a laptop, smartphone, tablet or wearable gadget you can get work done. Clients expect you to be accessible when they need you, and that you can accomplish your work regardless if you're at the office, at home, or sitting on the beach. But how can you be sure everything is safe? Under the Rules of Professional Conduct, you have a duty to protect their information and be technologically competent. This session will help you understand the risks associated with the mobile devices you use every day, and how to protect the confidential information you carry on them.
