Cybersecurity Insurance

This doesn’t really involve ethics or the Rules of Professional Conduct.  However, with ethics issues related to the electronic storage & transmission of client information being such a “hot topic” lately, I thought I’d post it.

Per this article from the ABA Journal, some are of the opinion that “cybersecurity insurance” is something that lawyers & law firms “must have.”  As you know, Vermont’s rules do not require lawyers to carry liability insurance.  Still, for those of you who do, this might be of interest. And for those of you who don’t, maybe it’s food for thought.
