As a court clerk, you have worked in clinical or legal positions where you were responsible for managing client information. Tell the interviewer about administrative roles dealing with health, security or government information. When you talk about your experience, be sure to discuss how it pertains to the job description. You can also show off your skills and strengths by highlighting your accomplishments or awards for your performance and consistency.
"When managing confidential information I'm careful to follow state and federal laws of securing documentation. I always hand -deliver documentation within the building as well as properly storing it in my office."
"I handle all my paperwork and information confidentially. My job is to safeguard the information that I'm managing and preparing for cases."
"My experience as a court clerk has given me a great deal of experience in handling confidential information. Everyone deserves the right to confidentiality, and I would never undermine that right. I do have experience using a variety of software designed for the safeguarding of information, as well."
"My experience as a Legal Assistant and Human Resources Assistant have given me a great deal of experience handling confidential information. Everyone deserves confidentiality. I do have experience using software designed for safeguarding as well."
This is a good answer. I would expand on what types of information you had to keep confidential (financial, personal, legal info). Expanding on specifics helps create a stronger visual for the interviewer, and those specific examples could make it easy for the interviewer to connect your experience to the requirements of the job for which you are interviewing.

"While interning at the police department and juvenile detention center, I dealt with confidential information all the time. Living here for most of my life, there were, of course, names and people that I recognized. It was important for me not to share information of every name and case I came across with outsiders for their confidentiality and the confidentiality and trust of the organizations."
Your answer showcases your strong ability to use discretion - a very good response! I like that you are adding specific examples when answering your questions. This approach helps to bring your background to life, for the interviewer.
