John's CLEs for attorneys on cybersecurity

In 2017 my first book was published, Cybersecurity for the Home and Office, The Lawyer's Guide to Taking Charge of Your Own Information Security, from the American Bar Association (ABA).

Since then I have been providing continuing legal education (CLE) to attorneys about cybersecurity, securing information assets, and using them more efficiently.

Some are afraid of technology and cybersecurity but should not be. It is a learning process, everyone can learn and improve.

This presentation is geared for lawyers and law firms, to comply with the cybersecurity CLE requirements. What is the difference between cybersecurity for lawyers and cybersecurity for others? We will cover those nuances, but the main takeaway is that good cybersecurity principles apply to all.
