Most companies in Silicon Valley will eventually have to deal with cyber breaches. It’s only a matter of time. Effectively handling the legal repercussions of a breach depends on whether key players in companies are equipped with important legal information that can be helpful before, during, and after an attack. Having the right kind of response plan in place will help companies weather the storm.

Geared toward senior management, technology professionals, small-business owners, and legal support staff, this course will review the important legal issues in the area of cybersecurity for businesses in the United States, the European Union, and Canada. Topics will include proactive legal measures that can be taken before, during, and after an attack (including who, according to state and federal laws, needs to be notified after an incident); and legal considerations associated with moving into the cloud and relating to new technologies such as mobile security, the Internet of Things, and Bring Your Own Device. Also covered will be how to comply with information governance, privacy, ecommerce, and consumer protection regulations from a cybersecurity perspective. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in intensive, lively discussions relating to modern legal issues in cybersecurity.
