About the Program:
Cloud computing, which involves the storage, transmission and processing of data, is an integral part of any “connected” attorney’s practice and carries with it certain obligations, such as protection of confidential client information that is transmitted electronically. Attorneys need to understand the technology they are using, the best ways to protect client information while using this technology, the safest products to use, and how to prevent and prepare for data breaches. Attorneys also should be aware of the ethical obligations associated with the use of this technology. This program, featuring experienced experts in technology, will provide participants with insight into all the aforementioned topics.
