American Bar Association President Laurel Bellows has appointed Justice Daniel Crothers to the ABAs Cybersecurity Legal Task Force.
Crothers is one of approximately 25 members appointed nationwide to conduct the Associations one year investigation into how lawyers, courts and the country can better prepare for growing threats to loss and misuse of computer created and stored information.
In making the appointment, Bellows said, Cybersecurity is one of our greatest concernsfrom threats to our national security, confidential information housed in our law firms and cybertheft of our nations intellectual property. She added her hope the ABA Cybersecurity Legal Task Force will offer recommendations for how we can best respond to threats directed at our nation and law firms.
Justice Crothers joined the North Dakota Supreme Court in 2007 and was recently reelected to a ten year term on the Court. He is active teaching judges and lawyers throughout the United States about technology and ethics, judicial disqualification and other topics. He currently serves on three committees within the ABAs Center for Professional Responsibility.
