These are just some of the firms hit by cyber-attacks. Attorneys are NOT immune, they are a treasure trove of information and are often the least equipped to weather the storm.  This program will: advise how law firms must look at cyber security and privacy; examine current and pending NJ Law;  discuss ethical considerations and requirements on electronic storage, access of client files and attorney obligations after a breach; and provide insight on cloud storage & privilege, contract considerations, engagement letters, risks, damages, mitigation, remediation and recovery.

(The pre-dinner seminar will be submitted to the BCLE of the Supreme Court of NJ for 2.0 hours of Ethics CLE credits. Recognized for CLE Credit in NY.)
