EXP Academy Course Approved by Washington State Bar Association - Continuing Legal Education

Continuing Legal Education

Security Awareness Training at EXP Academy has been approved by the Washington State Bar Association for one hour of credit towards Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (CLE) requirements.


The Need for Security Awareness Training

Studies indicate that over 85% of successful cyberattacks are the result of human error, action, or inaction.

Despite this sobering statistic, over 30% of small business (including a surprisingly high number of law offices) offer no cybersecurity awareness training for their employees.

Security Awareness Training at EXP Academy was developed specifically for small and medium-sized businesses in the Pacific Northwest. It’s a free resource to guide all towards a more mature cybersecurity posture and safer computing habits.

EXP Technical, based in Seattle, offers this training at no charge because we have a vested interest in keeping the Pacific Northwest secure. We live and work here and want to see the region thrive.

The course curriculum, outlined below, will empower attorneys, paralegals, and administrative staff to spot phishing, vishing, ransomware, and other cyberthreats.


Per the Washington State Bar Association “all of the 45 CLE credits Washington attorneys must report every three years may come from on-demand seminars” like the Security Awareness Training course at EXP Acadamy.

The Washington State Bar Association has specifically approved EXP Academy Security Awareness Training for CLE.
