Prepare Yourself and Your Client: Ethical Obligations Surrounding Cyber-Security Issues
Teresa Shulda, Foulston Siefkin LLP, Wichita, KS

By now, nearly all of us have received a notice from one company or another disclosing a data-security breach that may have exposed those oh-so-personal numbers that identify who we are. For lawyers and our clients, the question is no longer “if” but “when” technology systems will be compromised. In a time when data-security breaches are near daily news, lawyers must understand the risks associated with the use of their own and their clients’ technology. That doesn’t mean lawyers must become cyber whiz-kids, but they must recognize data-security issues when they come up and learn how to competently advise clients or when to consult with available experts. And it’s just as important to understand how to protect clients’ confidential information from unauthorized intrusion on law firm computers, servers, and devices. This session will cover some recent data security breach cases. We’ll discuss how some companies and law firms got it right and why others missed the mark. Throughout the session, we’ll discuss an attorney’s ethical obligations to clients both before and after data-security issues arise.
