Lawyer's Guide to Cybersecurity, Privacy & Emerging Technologies

Robert Spangler & Lisa Spiegel

The threat of a cybersecurity attack on both solo/small and large law firms is at an all-time high. ABA Formal Opinion 483 starts with the following observation: “…the data security threat is so high that law enforcement officials regularly divide law firms and business entities into two categories: “those that have been hacked and those that will be.” Given that environment, you must wonder “Am I being responsible and am I safe?” when it comes to cybersecurity and data privacy.
