Working Remotely: Legal Ethics & Technology Scams


How do you as a lawyer working remotely meet your ethical duties of competence, confidentiality and supervision? And how do you make sure your tech systems are secure?

This one-hour program — sponsored by Attorney's Insurance Mutual of the South — looks at model ethics rules applicable to the remote environment and the realities of cybersecurity, including how to recognize phishing emails, how to avoid ransomware attacks and how to protect electronic devices. Birmingham lawyer J.S. Chris Christie with Sirote & Permutt PC digs into the specifics with actual examples of security compromises and provides recommendations for protecting yourself and your firm.
