Data breaches, whether caused by hackers, careless employees, cybersecurity lapses or other means, can have significant legal ramifications for organizations of all sizes. As privacy breach related claims wind their way through the courts, you must have a thorough understanding of the potential litigation risks if and when a data breach occurs. It is also crucial to proactively address the role of corporate counsel and privilege, and ethical and professionalism issues commonly encountered in connection with such matters.

Topics include:

  • Current trends in privacy breach class action litigation
  • Update on damage awards and settlements
  • Strategies and best practices for minimizing data breach litigation risk
  • Privilege issues in security reviews and data breach response
  • How to set roles and manage a legal process to address risks
