Data security breaches continue to dominate the headlines, with more and more businesses, governmental authorities and other organizations falling victim. Recent news suggests that data breaches are actually under-reported. Thus, the problem is even worse than currently thought. To equip in-house counsel for this ever-growing threat, this session will examine key measures that businesses must take to protect themselves and comply with the law, including how in-house counsel can better work with their IT departments and risk managers, how best to deal with a data breach, and providing an overview of the types of losses that a serious breach will entail so that in-house counsel can make more informed assessments of this peril and adjust their risk management strategies and insurance purchases accordingly.
