Having been forced to work from home with relatively no advance warning has opened up a
big can of cybersecurity worms. Many lawyers and staff are using home PCs and saving client documents/data on those computers. The ethical and malpractice pitfalls of working remotely and how to address them are discussed in relation to the Oregon Rules of Professional Conduct. Learn about the need for full disk encryption, email encryption, home wireless router security, Windows updates, antivirus and malware protection, cloud options, and how to tighten up security when using Dropbox, Box, One Drive, or Google Drive. While this all may sound overwhelming, there are many things that you can do right away that are free, or next to free, that will make a big impact.
