“That’s the FBI calling… I’ve got to take this.” – words concluding one (now defunct) law firm interview to the ABA Journal after the firm was hacked and client information was published on a website. A lawyer in Texas has confidential files found on a computer for sale in a pawn shop. Routine, smaller accidental breaches occur EVERY DAY and needless unmitigated risks are commonplace.

As stories of data breaches fill the news, clients are increasingly aware of the importance of keeping their data safe, and you may lose clients if you cannot demonstrate your ability to protect their data. Failure to protect information, or an incorrect response after the fact, also could potentially result in multi-million dollar government fines, contract or malpractice claims, or Bar discipline.

Consider attending this State Bar of Arizona CLE on February 19th to earn 3 CLE Ethics Credits.

This CLE program offers an in-depth look at key considerations that lawyers and their staff should review to help meet their legal and ethical requirements. Additionally, this information may be helpful to lawyers in advising their clients in the areas of risk management, compliance, and breach notification. This program will be broadly applicable to virtually all lawyers and law firms, as it will focus on the requirements of HIPAA, state data breach laws, and ethical obligations in maintaining not only health information, but other sensitive client information – such as tax returns and W-2s, Social Security numbers, and driver’s license numbers – as well. Additionally, it will discuss the HIPAA framework as a suggested model for how all law firms can help protect the security of information, regardless of the practice areas involved or nature of the data being protected
