Event Synopsis:

Data security continues to be a significant issue of concern for many businesses. Class actions continue, and standing to sue can be based on minimal harm. It is important that the lawyers advising businesses, and businesses themselves, be well-versed in new developments and updates surrounding the ethical obligations in the data security landscape. This presentation will address important ethical considerations arising from the duty of competence and duty of confidentiality to employ reasonable efforts to address data security. The program will cover best practices for cyber security incident planning, and will provide updates on recent cases on cyber-insurance coverage. The program will also survey recent decisions involving attorney client privilege and work product in the cyber security context. We will also address recent ethics opinions on cyber security, including one opinion covering of the right to be forgotten under the GDPR and California’s Consumer Privacy Act.

Panelist Carole Buckner will bring the audience to beyond the basics of ethical obligations in data security with practical and tactical tips. She will provide in-depth analysis of current ethical guidelines and practical and strategic tips for best practices in the evolving cybersecurity landscape.
