Privacy and Security


Privacy and Security

Information security and privacy are prioritized at our firm. Many of our clients are facing extreme violations of privacy, and dealing with bad actors maliciously persistent in trying to access or spread private details. As such, we have strict privacy policies for ourselves and our clients. These measures apply to our retained clients only.

Privacy measures we take

We prioritize privacy within the litigation. Whenever appropriate, we make prefiling motions to use a pseudonym and seal the file. We don’t take press inquiries on cases unless authorized. We require nondisclosure agreements of all employees and contractors.

Cybersecurity measures we take

We take great precautions to secure our digital files. Devices are encrypted. Wireless keyboards are prohibited. We have a cybersecurity manifesto that we abide by. All accounts are protected with two-step authentication, and we use complex, unique passwords for e-mail as well as to secure our devices. All devices have passcodes. Passwords are never shared. We have a number of other measures in place that we can tell clients about, but to describe them on this site would only compromise security.

Privacy and security precautions we request of our clients

We ask that clients not send any confidential information via email, cell phones, wireless Internet, or other communication methods that are vulnerable to interception by a third party. We recommend using a portal, thumb drive, mail, or personal delivery instead. When in doubt, check with us before sending a file or e-mail.

We also ask that you use two-step authentication on your email accounts, create complex unique passwords, create access codes for your computer(s) and devices (e.g. cell phone), do not share passwords, and take great care to keep track of your portable devices. If your computer or device is lost, stolen, or possibly compromised, we ask you to immediately notify C. A. Goldberg, PLLC. In extreme cases, we may install encryption software on your computer and/or sign up for a dedicated, private portal for attorney-client communications.

During litigation, we strongly recommend that clients be discreet and noncontroversial on the Internet, and shore up your privacy settings on social media. Anything you do or say on social media may be used against you by the opposing party. Don’t make it easy for them. If we are suing somebody over something awful that happened to you and there is even one picture of you available online having a nice time, it is guaranteed that it will be used against you in court by the opposing party.

If you are being attacked online by somebody, please immediately restrict your Facebook settings, require permission for anybody to post on your wall or tag you in a photo, and make your friends list private. Enable two-factor authentication on all accounts, create unique complex passphrases and answer security questions in unexpected ways (e.g. “Q: What’s your mother’s maiden name? A: Baby Jessica fell in a well”). We can help show you how. Lock your doors. Stay alert. Stay safe.
