ETHICS - The Ethics Rules Have Changed – Simple Legal Tech Security Measures Every Lawyer Must Take
1.0  CLE Ethics Credit

Rule 1.6(d) stipulates that a lawyer must make reasonable efforts to prevent the disclosure of confidential client information. The comments to Rule 1.6 require lawyers to act competently to safeguard client information, and use reasonable safety precautions when transmitting a client communication. The exact meanings of "reasonable efforts," "act competently" and "reasonable precautions" may be subject to debate. However, doing nothing certainly won't meet the standard. The good news is that you don't have to be a security expert or techie to protect yourself and your office. Learn how to cover all the bases of computer, smartphone, tablet, email, wireless and document encryption. We'll also cover the fundamentals of backing up your electronic data. Half of the battle is simply knowing what questions to ask and it's not nearly as complicated as it sounds. Establish best practices in your office and discover the inexpensive or free tools that will make sure your confidential information remains confidential.
