The Virtual Workplace

In recent years many technological advancements have been integrated into the legal industry. Indeed, maintaining electronic records of all information is standard operating procedure at large and small companies as well as law firms. In addition, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of employees who telecommute, either a few days a week or full-time, in recent years. Indeed, there are now virtual companies and law firms which maintain limited, if any, physical office space. Yet these developments raise questions concerning the ability of companies and law firms to maintain confidentiality of proprietary information. Our panel of experts will discuss such issues as: protecting the confidentiality and integrity of client information from remote locations; cyber security and confidentiality; using cloud storage for storing client information; developing and maintaining an encryption system; necessity to stay informed of technological advances and developments; establishing and maintaining proper protocols; and more!!
