About this webinar

The pandemic transformed the legal profession in ways that were unimaginable.  The 2021 ABA Legal Technology Report shows just how dramatic that change has been.

David Ries led our 2022 webinar on Cyber Security Ethics, and makes a return appearance to provide an updated assessment of the constantly evolving landscape of cyber threats.  He is a national thought leader in the burgeoning field of Cybersecurity Ethics. David is author of the Cybersecurity Chapter for the ABA TechReport 2021 and the book Locked Down: Practical Information Security for Lawyers (ABA 2016).

As an attendee, you will learn how technology and cybersecurity are affecting their ethical obligations, including compliance with the Rules of Professional Conduct. You will discover best practices for safeguarding client data, maintaining technological competence, and running a virtual law practice. And will learn how to put Cybersecurity Ethics into practice to protect your firm, clients and data.
