Data Breach Webinar Series

Fall 2018
Four Part Data Breach Webinar Series

Data breaches have become an increasingly common – and costly – part of doing business.  A consortium of government agencies reported in 2016 that there were around 4,000 ransomware per day that year, and it has been estimated that, by 2019, cyberattacks will cost businesses over $2 trillion per year – which would be a four-fold increase over the cost these attacks imposed just a few years ago in 2015.  It is therefore imperative that organizations of all sizes, and in all industries, take proactive steps to address their cybersecurity-related exposure.  This webinar series will help your organization do just that. 

Topics to Be Discussed Include:
- Highlighting the Key Threats to your Data –
  Which, in Addition to Cyberattacks, Include Employee Error, Theft, and Vendor-Related Issues
- Your Legal Obligations to Safeguard that Data
- Practical Guidance on How to Prevent Breaches
- The Process of Investigating and Responding to a Breach       

Sponsored by the Committee on Technology and the Legal Profession, the Law Practice Management Committee and the Committee on Continuing Legal Education of the New York State Bar Association.
