About the Program
It seems that nearly every day brings a report of a new data breach or the consequences of an old one.
This presentation will address some of the key legal ethical concerns raised by cyber-security issues, including the duties of competence, supervision and maintaining client confidences.
Topics will include understanding law firm and corporate legal department vulnerabilities, managing and minimizing both internal and external cyber risks, and how to be prepared for a data breach response.
*One hour of Virginia interactive (live) ethics MCLE credit is anticipated.
