Technology poses an ever-increasing threat to the attorney-client privilege as well as confidentiality. Emails and social media profiles are usually the culprits when clients or attorneys waive their privilege and inadvertently disclose sensitive information. Additionally, utilizing an employer's technology to communicate can serve as a breach for documents and communication.

The ABA's Model Rules of Professional Conduct should be referenced by attorneys who need guidance on protecting the privilege. This seminar will highlight the pitfalls that should be taken into consideration when using mobile devices, emails, social media, and cloud storage.
