As technology becomes ever more complex, the scope and scale of cyber attacks and risks are increasing at an unprecedented rate. Cyber issues are high on the agenda for boards of directors and senior management. We all know that cybercrime is no longer just an issue for the IT department or an issue relating only to U.S. state laws. Governments around the world are working to educate businesses about the risk of cybercrime and are taking a much more active role in law enforcement. Privacy practitioners are increasingly being called upon to address boards of directors regarding the need to moderate the demands of corporate and national security according to fundamental privacy rights and the requirements of various regulations and enforcement activity in the U.S., Asia, and Europe.

Although it will never be possible for data security to be perfect, there are many steps that companies can take to address and mitigate the risks and respond appropriately when a compromise occurs. Security incidents can present significant risks to companies in a number of different ways, including negative brand and reputation attention, loss of sales or customer churn, financial penalties, and legal exposure.

During this program, you will receive practical guidance on the multiple challenges posed by cybersecurity issues. Topics to be addressed will include:

  • Current and upcoming rules in various jurisdictions, including the U.S., Europe, and Asia
  • How to work with regulators around the world in response to enforcement actions
  • Crucial action items before, during, and after a security incident
