Helping Businesses, Professionals And Lawyers Uphold Their Information Security Duties
Technology offers countless advantages for businesses and professionals – but it also comes with risks. Companies and professionals have a legal duty to safeguard sensitive data. Developing and implementing information security practices is an important business priority and one that will look different depending on the nature of your business and technology as well as the types of data you manage.
At Kobes Legal PLLC, information security is a core area of our practice, and it’s one we take seriously. Our lead attorney, Brett Kobes, holds an international certification (ISO 27001) in information security through National Quality Assurance (NQA). With both a law degree and a master’s in business administration, he understands the legal and business considerations that factor into developing a thorough information security plan.
Helping Businesses In A Wide Range Of Industries
Almost every business can benefit from an individualized review of their information security practices. We can evaluate weak points and compliance issues and provide concrete recommendations for improving your data security. Our lawyer can assist with implementing those recommendations through steps such as creating training programs, drafting policies and perhaps pursuing the ISO 27001 certification for your business.
Helping Attorneys Comply With Their Ethical Obligations
Lawyers have a professional responsibility to safeguard client data. Under Rule 1.1 of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, attorneys must keep abreast of relevant technology changes and the risks they pose. Both the American Bar Association (ABA) and the Washington State Bar Association (WSBA) have issued opinions addressing some of the many complicated and nuanced ways this responsibility plays out in the context of data security.
Our firm serves as a valuable resource for other attorneys and law firms on this critical legal duty. We can help ensure that your practice complies with the Washington Rules of Professional Conduct.
