John's CLEs for attorneys on cybersecurity

In 2017 my first book, Cybersecurity for the Home and Office, The Lawyer's Guide to Taking Charge of Your Own Information Security, was published by the American Bar Association (ABA). Since then I have been providing continuing legal education (CLE) to attorneys about securing their information assets.

About Pace and this CLE

This is the third annual Cinco de Mayo presentation of this cybersecurity and ethics CLE. Now, cybersecurity CLE is a NYS requirement.

Pace University's law school is now officially The Elisabeth Haub School of Law, and I graduated from there in 2002. Now, I teach one course per year at the law school and one at the Seidenberg school of Computer Science and Information Systems (CSIS).

Some enterprising folks at the law school (Lori) provide a tremendous benefit for Pace Law Alumni -- periodic free CLE webinars -- and this presentation is a part of that. It is a pleasure to be a part of this program and to make this contribution to the Pace community.

Space permitting, attorneys outside the Pace community can attend, and a small fee is required to help cover the administrative costs of the CLE processing and to better Pace.

This presentation is also for non-lawyers in the Pace community. The cybersecurity principles here apply to all organizations.
