Public companies are indisputably at the front lines of today's cybersecurity challenge. But the fog of cyberwar should not obscure the obligations of companies and their boards of directors in dealing with cyber risk.

Please join us as Raj De, current Mayer Brown partner and former NSA General Counsel, Randy Milch, CLS Distinguished Fellow and former GC of Verizon, and Zachary Goldman, CLS Executive Director, discuss how established corporate governance principles should structure the board’s approach to cybersecurity. Topics to be addressed include:

  • The ways in which cybersecurity threats pose a challenge to companies of all sizes, and in most industries;
  • How traditional legal rules governing the risk management obligations of boards can be adapted to the cybersecurity context;
  • How boards should interact with a company’s management to mitigate cyber risk.

For a brief overview, please read a recently published paper by the Center on Law and Security at NYU School of Law about this subject.
