Technological advances have made communication more instant and, some cases, easier than ever, but also bring about serious risks for lawyers.
With just a tap on a smartphone we can share important and timely information with a client, but also can inadvertently share information with someone who is not.
Social media allows us to reach an audience of hundreds in a moment, but leaves few options to take back a badly worded post. Technology allows us to hold critical and at times unlimited amount information in our hand, but at the same time hold a potential data breach in that same device. All of these issues raise serious legal ethics issues that attorneys need to think and plan for.
In this session, Attorney Timothy Gilsbach will review the following issues:
- – How is the confidentiality rules impacted by e-mail and texts?
- – What can an attorney say or not say on social media about cases that he or she is handling?
- – What efforts must and should an attorney take to secure data saved on a lap top or smartphone?
- – What should attorneys do to reduce the risk of a data breach?
- – What steps must you take if a mistake is made
- – AND MORE!
Lunch will be provided.
