Cybersecurity can be scary for lawyers. And a pandemic and “working” from home can make it scarier. But it doesn't have to be. Join Lucian Pera, Partners at Adams & Reese, for a one-hour discussion of lawyers’ ethical obligations for cybersecurity of client confidential information. The course will discuss very specific applications of the ethics rules and obligations, and how they apply to a number of common technology tools used by lawyers and law firms. Attorneys will walk away with specific and tangible suggestions for how to be safer, a little bit at a time, every day.
