Data Privacy and Security Compliance After the Target Breach: Lessons for Corporate Counsel

This CLE webinar will provide corporate counsel with an analysis of recent legal developments impacting data privacy and security compliance. The panel will outline proactive strategies to reduce the likelihood of a data breach and provide best practices for responding when a breach occurs.

Recent high profile data breaches at Target, Living Social, Google, Yahoo and other major companies, as well as the surge in data privacy class actions and a federal cybersecurity framework expected in Feb. 2014, emphasize the need for corporate counsel to fine-tune their policies and practices for managing private customer and employee electronic information.

Breaches in data security damage the reputations of companies and put trade secrets and confidential information at risk. They also increase the likelihood of state and federal enforcement actions, fines and class action suits.

Companies' growing use of cloud computing to virtually store private information raises a host of new privacy and security concerns for corporate counsel. Recent well-publicized incidents of virtually stored information being irretrievably lost should push counsel to negotiate agreements with cloud vendors that specifically include data security measures.

Listen as our authoritative panel of privacy and data security attorneys examines recent legal developments impacting data privacy and security compliance. The panel will outline proactive legal strategies for counsel to reduce the risks associated with data breaches and best practices for responding to a breach to minimize liability.
