Digital Detectives: Lawyer Ethics and NSA Surveillance

No longer a question of “if,” but “when” law firm communications will be hacked, Digital Detective hosts Sharon Nelson and John Simek talk with cyber security expert David Reis from Clark Hill Thorp Reed on lawyer ethics and NSA surveillance. He regularly deals with privacy and security issues in his practice and frequently writes and speaks on them for legal, professional, and academic groups.

In this episode of Digital Detectives, Reis discusses additional measures to protect client information, alterations to the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, increased contractual expectations from clients, and a growing need to encrypt portable devices. Tune in to learn more about these developing areas of attorney responsibility.
