Course Description

Attorneys face many ethical and compliance issues relating to cybersecurity. Companies of all sizes are often targets of hackers, disgruntled employees and other malicious actors.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Grasp the importance of cybersecurity, and maintaining the confidentiality of client information
  2. Examine the ethical rules governing an attorney’s obligation to safeguard client information
  3. Identify best practices for maintaining compliance with ethical obligations, and safeguarding client information under U.S. privacy laws and the European Union’s new Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
