While issues related to data breach and cybersecurity have long been in the public eye, recent high-profile breaches have caused federal and state lawmakers, regulators and attorneys general to focus a spotlight on how effectively companies, universities, and government agencies are protecting consumer information from unauthorized access. New laws are being pushed and new lawsuits being filed. And in response to an executive order issued by President Obama in 2013, the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) has recently developed a cybersecurity framework for critical infrastructure.
The landscape in this area is shifting rapidly, with more developments likely to follow in response to the publicity surrounding the recent breaches. Businesses will face critical questions about compliance and potential enforcement and liability. Please join us for a two-part webinar series as we discuss these developments and explore the implications for businesses.
Part I – March 20, 2014
We will focus on contemplated legislative and regulatory responses to recent data breaches and the potential impact of the NIST cybersecurity framework.
Businesses with an interest in the future of data breach and cybersecurity litigation, regulation and policy development—especially retailers, financial service providers, health care providers and energy companies—should consider attending.
