Date: Thursday, December 5, 2013
Time: 2pm ET | 11am PT
With a workforce increasingly dependent on technology, it’s no longer acceptable for those in the legal department to leave concerns firmly in IT’s court. From allegations of intrusion from government entities following revelations of the PRISM program to breaches that can seriously damage the infrastructure of your operation, concerns are rising around data security and privacy issues that affect in-house counsel.
But for a department that can be notoriously slow in the adoption of new software and monitoring techniques, the IT space can be a complicated one to navigate. To gain a better understanding of your company’s risks and the strategies it can employ to stop them, join InsideCounsel for this live, interactive webcast sponsored by Bloomberg Law.
Topics to be covered will include:
- Privacy and security in M&A and the increasing recognition of data as an asset and potential liability
- The recently finalized HIPAA/HITECH Act and how it will affect corporations regardless of whether or not they are in the healthcare field
- Discussion of the NIST cybersecurity framework draft, and how it can be applied to specific industries
