All levels of society rely upon information technology systems. Network operations are pervasive and impact nearly every aspect of our society. The desire of companies to collect, use, store, and secure information about customers, employees, and other individuals is a requirement of the new economy. It is no wonder that the prevalence of electronic communications and a growing dependency on cyber structures and operations also create potential vulnerabilities to cyberattacks. It is critical to preserve information systems and address and prevent weaknesses in cyber protection efforts. This webinar examines the means for companies to reach data goals ethically, efficiently and legally. The panel will also discuss the evolving regulatory approaches of the European Union, United States Federal government and significant developments in U.S. state regimes, including California. Best practices and model comprehensive privacy and cybersecurity policies are discussed. And, data breach response and related litigation, including class action litigation issues and fiduciary duty violations under corporate law, are discussed.
