New York lawyers and law firms (of all sizes) hold significant amounts of personal information that subjects them to new statutory requirements, adoption of an information security program, and ethical dilemmas in compliance. The Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security Act (S.5575B/A.5635) (SHIELD Act) information security provisions, governing the storage, use, protection, disposal, and data breach notification of New York resident’s private information, became effective on March 21, 2020. This jargon free presentation provides a succinct overview about the statutory, ethical, and cybersecurity issues posed by the SHIELD Act accessible to highly technological lawyers as well as tech wary attorneys touching on the new information security requirements, penalties for breach, applicable legal ethical principles, and types of products available to the legal sector to assist in compliance with the SHIELD Act’s reasonable security requirement.
