Understanding Your Company’s Legal Risks and Obligations

Information is critical to all business activity. Today, virtually all corporate, financial, product, client, vendor, and employee information is created, used, communicated and stored using digital technology. Although this allows businesses to reduce costs and increase productivity, it has created significant vulnerabilities to both internal and external threats. Yet, ensuring the security of corporate computer and communications systems and the information that they contain is not just a technical problem, it’s also a legal issue that affects your company, its employees, its customers, and its vendors. This session will focus on the following legal aspects of information security and cybersecurity:
The Sources of a Company’s Legal Obligation to Implement Cybersecurity
Ruth Hill Bro, Baker & McKenzie,
The Scope of a Company’s Legal Obligation to Implement Cybersecurity
