Updated guidance from the ABA on remote work
Recently, the American Bar Association shared new guidance for attorneys when working remotely. Coming nearly one year after the start of virtual work for most attorneys because of the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Formal Opinion 498 identifies some of the minimum requirements under ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct and suggests several best practices to meet ethical obligations in a virtual setting. The new guidance serves as an essential reminder about the importance of necessary precautions to safeguard confidential case and client information, particularly when working remotely. This includes the importance of working with a third-party record retrieval vendor that is HIPAA compliant. CSI offers full HIPAA compliance via our secure online portal, CSI Cortex.
