This webinar aims to educate Florida Bar members about technology security controls and steps to protect their practices and clients from intrusion. Most lawyers have heard of firewalls and anti-virus software, but its human element is the weakest link in any digital security. We will discuss data and security protection fundamentals, including the CIA, DAD, and DiD models, and best practices for law firms to protect their businesses and clients. We will also discuss the ethical and legal requirements in case of a breach. We finish with laying out the best tools in the tech space to help create barriers that protect the public.

Jordan Ostroff grew up in South Florida and came to Orlando to attend the University of Central Florida. The son of a postal employee and a substitute teacher, for whatever reason he had always known he wanted to be a lawyer, even without knowing what that really meant. At UCF, he competed on the trial team and traveled around the country doing fake cases while learning real skills. He continued to Barry University’s School of Law and continued on this path to being a great trial attorney. After graduating from law school with high honors and a litigation certificate he went to work for the State as an Assistant State Attorney. There he handled thousands of cases and handled around 50 trials and hundreds of motions.

Eventually, he left the State with a dream, a dream to do things a different way. To leverage the latest legal technology and systems to create a client-focused practice. Jordan Law started in 2015 with just Jordan in a small office and has since grown to a multi attorney firm with its own building taking cases throughout Central Florida.

You see that Jordan Law difference from the very first minute you call the office. Our whole firm is cloud-based, so those first questions our staff asks about your contact information will be saved for every document instead of you having to fill out the same form 15 times. Little details like this streamline the entire legal process and allow us to give you facetime with your attorney, rather than having 1 lawyer and 15 staff members.

Jordan believes that high seas raise all boats and to this day we get over 90% of our cases from referrals from other lawyers, doctors, financial professionals, and especially current and former clients. That means that we’ve built those systems and processes to not only have to do an amazing job on your case legally but that we have to make it as smooth of a process for you the whole way through. We aren’t looking to just be your lawyer on this one case, we are looking to be a trusted partner in your life for the next 20-30 years.

When he’s not managing the office and building better and better systems, Jordan can usually be found either playing disc golf, eating with friends, or with his wife and son -enjoying Sea World, the science center, or just digging in the dirt with toy construction vehicles–which his son likes to play with too.
