JOLT’s 2015 Symposium

Who’s Looking At Your Mobile Device?

Thank you to everyone who attended! We hope to see you next year!

Data Security, Personal Privacy, and Information Governance in the Wireless World

Summary of the Symposium

The Annual JOLT Symposium will be Friday, February 27, 2015 at the University of Richmond Moot Court Room. The event begins at 9:00am and lasts until 4:15pm, with a reception following in the Law School Atrium.

This year, the focus of the Symposium surrounds e-Discovery and Information Governance as they relate to cell phones, laptops, and other mobile devices.  The tension between personal privacy and data security in the legal field are particularly prominent in mobile devices, with sensitive information accessible to outside parties through loss/theft of devices, hackers, and unsecure wireless networks.  Lacking statutory guidance, how law firms and the legal field navigate this tension is a source of tension and disagreement; clients text and e-mail attorneys regarding privileged issues, attorneys utilize Facebook and Twitter to attract potential clients, but where do these texts and mobile messages fit in with e-Discovery and ethics concerns?

Through our speakers, we will expand and discuss both sides of this debate, attempting to find a balance between personal privacy and data security in an increasingly public, wireless world.

Approved for 5.5 CLE Credits, including 1 Ethics Credit.
