CLE Credit Provided

From Equifax to Uber, high-profile data breaches of personal information continue to make headlines. But data breaches are not the only data privacy & security concerns for companies. This summer, a spate of ransomware attacks disabled or destroyed companies' computer systems & resulted in millions of dollars in damage. Meanwhile, privacy regulators have been clamping down on issues involving connected devices & the FTC has increasingly been studying the economics of privacy. In the CLE, Lydia Parnes & Beth George will talk about recent privacy & security regulatory actions, the FTC's ongoing privacy initiatives & workshops, the most common causes of data breaches, the roles of GCs & Boards of Directors in cybersecurity management, & steps that every company should take to protect themselves. Come with any burning questions you have, whether it's about the latest FTC settlements, how economics is playing a role in analyzing privacy issues, what a SQL injection is, what Bad Rabbit does, whether your company should pay ransomware demands, or why that bug bounty program may not be the best idea.
