New York, NY, October 23, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: Data Breach Class Action Lawsuits on the Rise: How to Bullet-Proof Your Company from Data Breach Liability Live Webcast. This two-hour event is scheduled on March 15, 2016 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm (ET).
On an almost daily basis, U.S. companies become victims of data security breaches through which cyber criminals obtain not just the credit card information of the clients but also the people's home addresses, social security numbers and more. Often, these companies are left with no choice but to face class-action suits which usually demand millions of dollars for settlement.
Recent data breaches in the last two years involved retailers like Neiman Marcus and the craft store Michaels. Hackers installed malware to the companies' point-of-sale (POS) terminals allowing the theft of their shoppers' credit and debit card numbers. But high-profile data breaches involving Target in late 2013, followed by Home Depot in 2014 and the Canadian dating site Ashley Madison in July 2015, eclipsed all of the others.
Since it seems that breaching data systems has become an everyday success for cyber criminals, companies should, therefore, adopt effective data protection measures including sound security system for protection, early fraud detection and robust cyber insurance policies.
This course offers an overview of the latest trends with respect to recent data breach class action lawsuits. Speakers will offer best practices in developing and implementing effective data protection measures to minimize the risks of data breach and, consequently, avoid potential liability.
In a two-hour live webcast, the speakers will discuss:
· Understanding the Current Data Breach Climate
· Theories of Liability in Data Breach Class Actions
· An Overview of State Data Breach Notification Laws
· Data Protection and Security Measures
· Key Elements of a Data Breach Response Plan
· Strategies in Adopting Cyber Insurance Policies
· Recent Notable Data Breach Cases
