Originally presented on February 14, 2020.

Every company that stores files in the cloud, has a Web site, or engages in e-commerce is a data breach waiting to happen. Cyber attacks have become more frequent and more sophisticated, breaching even federal security agencies and global finance companies.  Every smaller company is constructively on notice that they may the next victim of a malicious breach. When that happens, clients often turn to their lawyers and ask, what now and are we liable? This program will provide lawyers with a real world guide to advising clients about data breaches – what they are, how to protect themselves legally, and what to do if it’s too late.

  • Framework of law of cyber security – sources of liability under federal and state law
  • What constitutes a data breach and your client’s obligation to protect against breaches
  • Data breach notification laws – what must you disclose and when
  • Risk of private causes of action and best practices to avoid
  • Policies, processes and agreements to protect against – or respond to a data breach

Speaker: Sue C. Friedberg, Buchanan, Ingersoll & Rooney, PC, Pittsburg, PA
