News reports of massive data breaches at top companies and organizations are seemingly without end. Moreover, it seems that, all too often, hacks and data breaches take months to be discovered—a major liability for victimized entities. If you are a lawyer representing a large company, it is less a question of whether your company will face a cyber attack, but when. Indeed, while companies continue to grow more technically adept at safeguarding their digital assets through advanced cyber-defense programs, solutions or strategies, hackers continue to keep pace, developing even more advanced methods for gaining access to private property.

Corporate counsel must be prepared to demonstrate to clients that their privacy and information are secure. Counsel must also be prepared to proactively work with the company’s board and C-suite to ensure that their organization is legally prepared for a data incident and in full compliance with regulatory standards. This conference offers comprehensive advice on new and emerging strategies for navigating an increasingly sophisticated cyber threat landscape.

    Cyber-Vigilance for Corporate Counsel: Trademarks and Privacy and New Paradigms for Lawyers

    There was once a time when cybersecurity risks were far removed from the day-to-day work of in-house attorneys. Today, however, the risks and liabilities faced by companies and organizations due to possible hacks, cyber attacks or data breaches are significant. This opening session examines the evolving role of counsel in responding to legal liabilities  and developing policies, procedures and safeguards to minimize or prevent attempted hackings. Key topics for discussion include:

    • Trademarks and privacy
    • The evolving role of the General Counsel with regard to cyber-threats
    • Collaboration and education on cyber-risks and legal liabilities for counsel
    • Utilizing outside counsel – a worthwhile investment or not?
