The updated comments to Rule 1.6 Confidentiality of Information in IL contemplates factors to consider when seeking to protect a client's confidential information from unauthorized access or, inadvertent or unauthorized disclosure. These include not only the sensitivity of the information to be protected and the likelihood of disclosure without safeguards, but also the difficulty of implementing the safeguards. In the Rule the client can require additional security measures or provide informed consent to waive certain security measures. How do lawyers balance security and convenience not only for the clients, but within the firm itself? Firms that use draconian security policies and protections may find attorneys - and clients - looking for ways to get around the security precautions. How can a law firm weigh the risks and find a happy medium that protects the client and firm data while leveraging available technology for efficiency?
