February 20, 2020 — A Lawyer’s Ethical Obligations After a Data Breach or Cyber Attack
, presented by Sharon D. Nelson and John W. Simek of Sensei Enterprises. 

To begin at the beginning, a data breach and a cyber attack are not the same thing. Our presenters will explain the differences, with concrete examples. They will then turn to the lawyer ethical duties outlined in ABA Formal Opinion 483 on a lawyer’s ethical obligations after a data breach or a cyber attack. You may be surprised at how much the opinion moves lawyers toward keeping replicated data in the cloud! What do you have to tell your clients? What do you have to tell third parties? Are you required to have an Incident Response Plan? What are the elements of an Incident Response Plan? Yes, it’s a bit dicey, but our experts will give you a roadmap to follow to keep you safe from ethical sinkholes!
