Description

Achieving Secure Confidential Client Communications

Friday, December 2nd

1:00 - 5:00 pm (program 1:30 – 4:30, with reception following)

Cleveland-Marshall College of Law Moot Court Room

3.0 CLE (including 1 credit in Attorney Professional Conduct/Ethics)

Sponsored by the Center for Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection

As the recent campaigns underscored, email and other digital communication methods often do not assure secure and confidential discussions that are critical to attorneys’ work. Cyber attacks have targeted both law firms and business organizations’ General Counsels’ offices (such as Sony Pictures), posting on the Internet extremely sensitive litigation and negotiation strategies, merger and acquisition plans, and other work product. Among the threats to confidentiality, hackers have the capacity to exfiltrate digital communication records (such as email Inboxes and archives) and to plant code that “calls home” to report to new communications on an ongoing basis.

Objectives: Attendees will obtain a clear understanding of their professional ethics duties when using digital/electronic communications, and several take-away practical ways to implement procedures or communication strategies that will better assure confidentiality.

The program will illuminate:

Common communications methods (e.g., email, texts, web portals, fax, postal mail), and their capacity to attain security and privacy objectives

Ethical duties regarding communications on client matters (especially the 2015 Ohio updates), and whether/how these duties can be satisfied by email and other methods

Action steps to improve client communication security & privacy.
