The statistics on data breaches are staggering. According to a recent report in Ipswich, the Breach Level Index (BLR) indicates that an average of 5,076,479 data records was lost or stolen every day in 2017. These breaches cost companies financially and in loss of reputation. The first 24-48 hours after a breach is discovered are critical to mitigating damages from the breach. That’s why it’s so important to be proactive when advising clients how to respond to a data breach—before it happens.
Join us on April 26, when attorney Jonathan Macklem and retired FBI Special Agent Scott Augenbaum will up date you on legal developments in data breach cases and provide practical tips to share with your clients when, and if, they need to respond a data breach. You will learn about:
- How to be a “breach coach” to your client
- Attorney-client privilege considerations
- Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards
- The ever-evolving arena of data breach litigation
- Judicial disagreement on the issues of Article III standing—who is the victim here?
- Class action considerations
- Rise in subrogation claims
- Administrative claims
