Coming December 10 at 1:00 pm Eastern, 10:00 am Pacific – a lawyer’s ethical duties in responding to disasters and data breaches. Featuring ABA Formal Opinion 483: Lawyers’ Obligations After an Electronic Data Breach or Cyberattack and Formal Opinion 482: Ethical Obligations Related to Disasters (2018).
This session will offer real-life examples on how to recover from a disaster or a data breach — ethically.
Disasters and data breaches bring with them conflicting priorities to resolve. Duties of disclosure compete with those of confidentiality for your attention. The responsibility to provide legal services for which your clients have contracted may be adversely affected by disaster. Model Rules 1.4 and 1.6 provide the standards and the recent ABA opinions flesh out your ethical duties in the event of a disaster (natural or man-made) or a data breach (which is of course a very specific form of a disaster!).
Join our panel of experts as they guide you through these opinions with practical examples of how best to ensure you and your clients are protected in the face of this new world and all it has to throw at you.
