New York lawyers and law firms (of all sizes) hold significant amounts of personal
information that subjects them to new statutory requirements, adoption of an information
security program, and ethical dilemmas in compliance. The Stop Hacks and Improve
Electronic Data Security Act (S.5575B/A.5635) (SHIELD Act) information security
provisions, governing the storage, use, protection, disposal, and data breach notification
of New York resident’s private information, became effective on March 21, 2020. This
jargon free presentation provides a succinct overview about the statutory, ethical, and
cybersecurity issues posed by the SHIELD Act accessible to highly technological lawyers
as well as tech wary lawyers touching on the new information security requirements,
penalties for breach, applicable legal ethical principles, and types of products available to
the legal sector to assist in compliance with the SHIELD Act’s reasonable security
requirement.
