Webinar Recording: Understanding the ABA 20/20 Rule Changes

For those who missed the live presentation and discussion, we have a recording of the recent webinar on Understanding the ABA 20/20 Rule Changes. In this session, Pat Archbold, Head of IntApp's Risk Practice, and Matt Wolf, Consultant at Carlson & Wolf, review how changes to Model Rules proposed by the ABA affect lawyers and how firms can best respond.

Topics include:
  • ABA Model Rule changes
  • Client pressure
  • Insurer pressure
  • Evolution of technology
  • Response tactics
These changes clarify lawyers' ethical obligations to protect client information, including a requirement for lawyers to achieve a basic understanding of the benefits and risks of relevant technology, such as cloud computing, and to take reasonable steps to safeguard client confidential information, including information in electronic form, against unauthorized or inadvertent access by third parties.

Designed for non-technical audiences, this presentation provides a great overview for those looking to learn about current trends and emerging requirements, along with lessons they can apply at their firms.
