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 securing their information assets.

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

See my main page on cybersecurity for attorneys.


TRTCLE offers online continuing legal education for attorneys in all U.S. states, districts and territories. They offer excellent value and many quality instructors and courses.

If you enroll in my CLE course with TRTCLE, that will be a relationship between you and them, governed by their terms of use and service. Of course I want that experience to be excellent, so feel free to send me a note to let me know how it went for you.
