"Data Breaches: A Problem for Attorneys, Too"

Summer 2016
State Bar of Michigan Litigation Journal

Dante Stella, Detroit-based Member and Head of the firm’s Electronic Discovery Practice & Co-Chair of the firm’s Discovery Management Group, and Sherrie L. Farrell, Detroit office Managing Member & Leader of Dykema’s Cybersecurity Group, have written the article, “Data Breaches: A Problem for Attorneys, Too,” for the State Bar of Michigan Litigation Journal.

In their piece, Farrell and Stella reveal the surprising extent to which the legal community is exposed to data breaches, and the steps that should be taken to avoid committing ethical and privacy violations, revealing personal information, or disclosing confidential matters. They warn that even if one’s firm follows excellent security procedures, outside colleagues and opposing counsel might not be so vigilant, placing discovery materials at risk of leaks.
