Legal aid case management systems store a significant amount of personal and confidential data from our clients, their family members, opposing parties, staff, and others. Risks associated with the data increase as the amount of data we collect grows. Does your organization have current policies regarding the retention and destruction of data? What precautions does your organization have in place to avoid losses that can occur due to hacking into the program's network, improper access to or loss of portable technology, or inappropriate use of the web or information by staff? The panelists will also discuss the ethics and e-discovery implications of not having appropriate data retention and destruction policies.
