Conducting Land Transactions in the Cloud: Tips for Protecting Confidential Information

In the area of land use, there are plenty of documents that are shared by attorneys, municipal governments and consultants through DropBox, Google Drive and other Cloud based systems. Since early 2019, Texas attorneys must comply with the ethical duty of the technology competence which means that, in addition to the duty of confidentiality and the attorney client privilege, we must meet a higher standard for protecting client data. This session will discuss tools and best practices for satisfying this higher standard such as controlling access and adding security controls to protect the material from being accessed by invalid users. Further, review practical and effective safeguards to prevent wire transfer fraud in the context of  large amounts of money being wire transferred in real estate transactions.

    This is an area of employment law that I do not know well. As a result, I was lost in the first 10 minutes or so because: 1. I didn't know the Jargon; and 2. the government action distinction eluded me.

    I thought it was pretty good, especially the section on BREXIT.
