Rethinking Need for Lawyer Encryption
Episode 104 of the Kennedy-Mighell Report deals with a timely topic: “In Light of NSA Surveillance, Should Lawyers Encrypt?” Dennis Kennedy notes:
Lawyers have struggled with the notion of encryption over the years for historical and practical reasons. We discuss a range of encryption questions and issues, both practical and theoretical. It’s difficult not to feel that lawyers have dropped the ball on encryption and given away an opportunity to be thought leaders on the topic. What do you think about that? We also offer some predictions for the future and I found myself being more optimistic about lawyers’ use of encryption than I had expected to be when we started the podcast.
