Ethically Speaking: Why Lawyers Can No Longer Ignore Technology

With all the focus on leaks, hacks, data breaches, etc. it is becoming more and more clear that attorneys can no longer avoid their duty to stay conversant with technology in order to represent their clients adequately and assure confidentiality of client data and privileged communications.Indeed, legal departments for business organizations state that cybersecurity, regulation and ethics compliance are among their chief concerns, and they are well aware of the vulnerability of their own business security due to weakness of their law firms, cybersecurity. Learn from a panel of experts about the risks of a "mobile law practice;" the Model Rules of Professional Conduct's affirmative obligations of attorneys to be technically competent, the precautions lawyers must take to safeguard information, and what’s else is new in cyberSecurity and Privacy Law. A special portion of the program will also look at eFiling/hyperlinking in briefs, as many courts now require hyperlinking in briefs that are electronically filed and there is a proposed new rule in the NYS Commercial Division that would require hyperlinking.
