Data Security Breach Response
1 hour 5 minutes
Know how to execute your own security breach response plan and how to minimize your company’s risk.
In 2012, then Director of the FBI Robert S. Mueller III announced, ‘There are only two types of companies: Those that have been hacked and those that will be hacked.’ Several years later, Cisco CEO John Chambers remarked that a more accurate statement may be: ‘There are only two types of companies: Those that have been hacked and those that don’t know they have been hacked.’ Executives are increasingly accepting the notion of not if but when their companies will fall victim to some type of cyber-attack or malicious intrusion upon their systems. Companies must act decisively and effectively to protect their customers and themselves from the potentially devastating impact of data breaches. This course will educate companies and their counsel on the legal and practical ramifications of a data breach. Receive an overview of incident response and breach notification obligations under applicable law. Longer-term effects will be considered, including impact on brand and reputation, with lessons learned from high-profile incidents. The material then examines how cybersecurity has evolved from an IT issue to a regular agenda item in many of the boardrooms of America, particularly in the face of regulatory review of corporate responses to breaches. There will also be a discussion on strategies to create a security culture within your organization and implement administrative, technical and physical security measures to manage risk.
