Duties of Confidentiality and Competence When Handling Digital Documents


The duty of confidentiality arises from the relationship of trust.

As part of their professional code, attorneys have a duty to keep the confidence and secrets of their clients.  In fact, without their client’s informed consent to disclose confidential information, the duty of confidentiality has a small number of exceptions. In consideration of handling digital documents, the duty of confidentiality obligates attorneys who use technology to use competent and practical steps in order to protect their client’s data. This video reviews how the duty of confidentiality, as well as the duty of competence, is required when handling digital documents.
