Quick Technology Confidentiality Audit for Lawyers

December saw me reprising my “Confidentiality in a Wired World” for lawyers coming to practice in Ontario.  I’ve tried it a bunch of different ways over the years, as I’ve given the presentation every spring and winter for about 5 years.  The program planners introduced clickers for audience response, which made me rethink the program flow.  I also decided to convert the paper into more of a checklist format, so that it could be pulled out periodically and reviewed or compared against what the lawyer or law firm is doing.

Here is the paper.  Feel free to download, etc., but if you want an editable version, just drop me an e-mail.

My books on finding information and managing it and practicing law using cloud computing reflect my interest in information management, technology, law practice, and legal research. I've been a library director in Canada and the US, as well as directing the American Bar Association's Legal Technology Resource Center. I speak and write frequently on information, technology, law library, and law practice issues.
