Contracting for Cybersecurity and Privacy Protections

In one high-profile data breach after another, businesses have learned a hard lesson: A company’s cybersecurity is only as strong as the weakest link in its supply chain. Suppliers often have access to a company’s systems and data, and cyber attackers know it, so companies need to be just as diligent about their suppliers’ cybersecurity measures as they are about their own.

Please join us as Mayer Brown partners Brad Peterson and Paul Roy discuss how to address this need through the contracting process. Drawing on their long experience negotiating supplier contracts, Brad and Paul will explain the importance of:

  • Securing commitments to specific cybersecurity measures;
  • Obtaining options for new cybersecurity measures as threats evolve;
  • Creating incentives to reduce the risk of data security breaches.
