Legal Ethics in the Era of Technology, Social Media, and the Pandemic

 

Learn how to avoid or minimize risks as an attorney in an increasingly digital world.

Many lawyers are unfamiliar with the nuances of computer technology and data security essential to comply with 21st century ethics rules in our digital world. There are many hidden dangers in frequently used tools and platforms, including email, social media and the Cloud.
The ethical dangers and minefields are compounded and heightened by the fact that the pandemic has caused an unprecedented and drastic increase in the remote practice of law from home and the use of digital tools and Internet connections in the practice of law, including the use of Zoom® and other digital meeting platforms, working from home over the Internet and using Alexa® and other digital devices.
Since lawyers and law firms are prime targets of hackers, all lawyers must be vigilant as to the use of technology, including the protection of client data and firm/department technology resources. It is critically important for lawyers to become more sophisticated in risk management in various technology contexts.
This topic will assist lawyers and law firm legal departments to identify and avoid or minimize the risks in our increasingly digital world, many of which they may not be aware. This material will also provide tips, suggested solutions, and best practices.
