Event Synopsis:

Concerns about cyber security and data privacy have grown exponentially. With them have come dramatically increased regulation and the inevitable litigation.

Potential liability for data breaches has emerged as a major issue of concern for corporations, with massive cyber-attacks cropping up regularly. The recent trends in Cyber Security Litigation suggest how lawyers capitalize on these breaches on behalf of shareholders against directors and officers in cases against Target Corp and Wyndham Worldwide Corp. It is notable that the majority of director and officer liability insurance policies don’t include cyber or data breach clauses.

Recent litigation trends call for new practices in mitigating risk exposure and protecting sensitive data. Companies and their counsel need to understand how to prevent intrusion and to detect and respond appropriately when it occurs.

In a two-hour live CLE webinar, The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners to provide an in-depth review discussion of Cyber Security Litigation. The panel of speakers will help the audience better understand the risks of cyber-attack and address how to prevent, respond to, and manage the repair and associated costs.

Key topics include:
- Cyber Security Breaches
- Cyber Security Regulations
- Regulatory and Policy Developments
- Legislative Developments
- Breach Litigation Risks
- Putative Class Actions
- Privacy Law Claims
- Common Law Claims - Tort
- Litigation Outcomes - Standing, Class Certification, Cognizable Damages
- Security and Breach Risk Avoidance Methods
