ALFA International: US and EU Data Incidents and Cyber Breaches
Robert Thompson will be participating in ALFA International's live webinar, "US and EU Data Incidents and Cyber Breaches," on Thursday, February 18, 2016 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST.
About this webinar: On a near daily basis, your Twitter feed, daily newspaper, or drive-to-work morning radio show announces that yet another large company has been hacked and that the proprietary nature of the company, its employees, or its customers’ information has been forever compromised. If your response to the onslaught of data breach news is, “This would never happen to my company or my clients,” it’s time to think again. Whether your company or client is a small or medium-size privately held business or a multinational Fortune 500 member, this free webinar will provide information that your company or client needs to know about the legal aspects of data breach and cyber security in 2016 and into the future. The webinar will include a discussion of the action items to help to reduce the probability of a data breach and manage the risk should a data breach occur. Topics will include insurance product options, contractual liability limitations with third-party vendors, and cyber security and breach action plans. The webinar also will address current and future EU and US governmental data protection regulation and compliance information.
