On October 14, 2021, Stephen Conover and Sherwin Yoder will present “The Lawyer’s Professional Responsibility Surrounding Technology, Electronic Communications, and Cybersecurity” for the Connecticut Bar Association.
About the Program
The past year and a half have highlighted the importance of using technology to keep our law firms and clients working. We also saw a corresponding rise in lawyer gaffes (meow!) and cyberattacks, as well as increasing regulation surrounding consumer data privacy. Case law, ethics opinions, and commentary to the ethics rules make it clear that all lawyers must “get smart” about the use of technology and the protection of digital client information from common mistakes and scams. This interactive panel will discuss some of the pitfalls surrounding law firm computing, e-mail, listservs, texting, videoconferencing, and remote working, and will present common cyber threat scenarios that law firms face and discuss how we should prepare for and respond to those scenarios, as required by certain rules of professional responsibility.
