Attorney Lamoureux’s presentation on “Keeping Personal Information Secure in the Digital Age” is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 15 from 9 a.m. to 9:50 a.m. In this age of cyberthreats and ransomware, attorneys are ripe targets for criminals because attorneys routinely hold confidential and valuable information such as financial records, banking records, and health related information. Attorney Lamoureux will discuss best practices for attorneys to follow when handling and presenting confidential information, such as medical records and other electronic documents, in workers’ compensation cases. He will also address the need for workers’ compensation attorneys to ensure that they have adequate office controls in place to prevent clients’ confidential electronic health information from being hacked by cyber criminals.
“I am pleased to once again present to workers’ compensation attorneys and professionals and look forward to discussing tips and traps that attorneys may experience when handling and presenting confidential information electronically in court,” said Attorney Lamoureux. “Attendees will learn the current dangers that attorneys face as targets of cyberthreats and cyber-extortion and ways to minimize these highly consequential risks.”
