About This Course

This CLE program will explore the issues surrounding cyber security, the potential consequences of a cyber breach, and the ethical considerations that accompany such an event. With over 50 state laws in the United States concerning data privacy and security, companies must understand what legal and ethical obligations their business and clients have when it comes to personal information.

The Federal Trade Commission also keeps an eye on companies to make sure that they are following their posted privacy policies. If not, the business could be hit with substantial fines. Law firms must also be aware of their ethical obligation to report a breach. An example of this is a law firm currently under investigation by the SEC for a breach that happened over two years ago. When a law firm has their data breached, there are a number of ethical, legal, and business issues to consider and prepare for. Cyber security insurance plays a role in helping businesses cope with a breach, but what is necessary to acquire or renew such insurance?
