Cybersecurity 101: Ethical Duties and Practical Tips for Kentucky Lawyers



Is it just me or do you have a love/hate relationship with technology? I love that I am drafting this in my neighborhood coffee shop over a secure, private network before heading to my next meeting. I also hate how quickly technology changes, making it difficult to feel like I have a good understanding of the latest trends. When it comes to technology in law practices, lawyers have the additional ethical obligation to adopt cybersecurity measures that appropriately protect their clients’ information. (See KBA E-446) It’s no wonder that many of us just throw up our hands in frustration.

The goal of this panel session is to ease some of this frustration. Attendees will gain a better understanding of what it means to implement reasonable cybersecurity processes in their practice. The panel will discuss practical tips for both preventing and responding to cyber incidents. Attendees will also gain a better understanding of what is and is not covered by cybersecurity insurance policies and what to consider when evaluating coverage.
