Clients regularly trust planning professionals with something nearly as valuable as their money — their personal information. Cyber criminals are well aware that financial planners, trust officers, CPAs and attorneys are treasure troves of information that can be exploited to perpetrate a variety of schemes and frauds. Concerned with this growing problem, clients are increasingly expecting that planning professionals will keep their information private as well as secure. Additionally, those professionals with access to client assets may be targets of cyber attacks to steal those funds. The challenge of keeping client information and assets secure has increased in recent months, as work environments have changed dramatically and rapidly due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and sadly, many cyber criminals are exploiting the impacts of the health crisis for their own financial gain.

This presentation will discuss the various cyber threats confronting estate planning professionals, legal obligations and risks in the context of data security, and some non-technical strategies for reducing this legal risk with specific considerations related to impacts from COVID-19.
