In 2012, comments were added to the ABA Model Rules that required attorneys take reasonable precautions to protect clients’ electronic data and to keep abreast of the technology required for competent representation of their clients in their practice area. In these changing times, many attorneys still struggle to understand the complicated requirements involved in protecting client data. Whether you represent health providers and banks or if you are just concerned with your ethical obligations to protect client data, one thing is certain: security must rise above the level of “annoyance” and become a top priority for law firms. Security must become something that is routine and an accepted part of the practice of law.
