The proliferation of multiple (often alternative) technologies in the workplace is a trend that organizations cannot ignore. While technology and the opportunities it presents are constantly changing, our professional responsibilities remain the same. How do lawyers take advantage of technological advancements all the while ensuring that they protect against the risks and keep within the Rules of Professional Conduct? How do you know if your organizational protections are sufficient to ensure you are not inadvertently disclosing your client’s confidential information?

Our panel will discuss recent technological trends and help you better understand and navigate the risks and opportunities of various technologies such as:

  • Cloud computing
  • Wireless technologies
  • Tablets and apps
  • Home connectivity
  • Social media
