Cyber security is a top concern for many organizations—and their corporate counsel. More than half of in-house counsel report greater investments in cyber security at their companies, according to a report from the Association of Corporate Counsel Foundation. One-third said their organizations had experienced a data breach already.
The high-profile dismissal of Yahoo’s chief counsel in March on the heels of its massive data breach points to the organizational risks when legal counsel don’t stay fully involved with data privacy issues.
On Wednesday, May 17, CyberScout will host a webinar to explore how organizations can rethink their handling of internal data and the implementation of best practices that ensure employees have the education, remediation and processes in place to avoid issues and possible legal exposures. Eduard Goodman, chief privacy officer, and Richard Blumberg, director of data breach response , both of CyberScout, will discuss current cases, situations and fact patterns in which data safety has been an issue. Takeaways include:
• How employee data can be at risk;
• How to mitigate risk with proper data storage procedures; and
• How to avoid liability of harm.
