Today's connected computing environment presents more potential sources for a data loss. Whether a loss is caused by a failed hard drive or computer or a malicious cyber-breach, it's more important than ever for lawyers to ensure that their important client information AND the information necessary to run the lawyer's office is backed-up to protect against a catastrophic loss.

In this presentation, computer consultant Elliott Stern will address key topics to help you ensure you're protected, including:

  • Why backup?
  • Determining whether you already have a backup
  • How and Where to backup?
  • What and When to backup?
  • Maestro’s 4R’s Model for better backup
  • Restoring Your Backups
  • Components of better backup software
  • Understanding Cloud Backup
  • Cloud Backup vs. Local Backup
  • What’s missing from your backup?
  • The Pros and Cons of built in backup utilities and options
  • Computer ER & CPR backup options (Disaster Recovery)

The program also includes a discussion of lawyers' ethical obligations to maintain the confidentiality of client data under ABA MRPC 1.4 and related state Ethics Opinions, as well as the requirement for lawyers to understand the risks and benefits of the technology they use under the ABA's recently-added Comment 8 to Rule 1.1 of the MRPC.

Elliott Stern
Elliott Stern has been working with computers since the first versions of DOS in 1981.

His first computer was the original Compaq suitcase,- 2 floppy drives and no hard drive. Elliott’s second computer suffered a hard drive failure for unknown reason, from that point on; he became passionate about backup technology.

Protection from infection, backing up your information and improving performance are still as important today as they were back in the 80’s. Today, Elliott helps solo and small firm attorneys, medical practices, and small businesses of all kinds support, maintain, and protect their computer networks and individual machines.

Elliott holds an MBA in Project Management from West Coast University as well as BA in Business Economics from UCLA. He also holds a certificate in Meeting & Event Planning from Cal State University, Dominguez Hills. He is also the author of “Keep Your Computer Running Right,” a guide to computer self-maintenance strategies.
