Cybersecurity: Ethical and Compliance Issues for International Law Firms and Corporate Counsel 

June 11, 2018 | 8:30am – 10:00am (Breakfast & check-in start at 8:00am)

International law firms face a multitude of ethical and compliance issues relating to cybersecurity. The EU’s Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has implications for law firms that do any business with Europe, whether they have EU-based clients, vendors or even mailing list contacts. Law firms are often targets of hackers seeking inside information about pending deals and valuable client intellectual property,  and firms can be victimized by malware even if it was not specifically targeted at them. Some of the most prominent firms in the world have suffered data breaches or systems shutdowns. This program will examine the ethical obligations of lawyers to understand and address cybersecurity risks in order to protect the confidentiality of client information. The panelists will identify steps that firms can take to protect themselves, and to comply with these ethical obligations and applicable requirements under the GDPR.
