"A 2019 Cybersecurity Legal Update"

In today's data environment, the question is not if sensitive corporate data will be compromised, but when.

To prepare for data breaches and meet compliance requirements, an understanding of the issues surrounding cybersecurity is essential for every business.

Join us to learn about
  • the legal requirements and considerations of data as it is acquired and as it flows within your organization and within interconnected organizations,
  • the role of the IT professional in various commercial transactions including Due Diligence, Contracts, and M&A, and
  • new updates to the “Reasonableness” standard for cybersecurity and how to stay current with future changes.
There will be time at the end for questions and answers. We hope to see you there!
