Webinar: Building an Incident Response Plan that Works: Legal and Practical Insights
It’s 10 p.m. on Friday, and your phone rings. It’s the FBI, and they say they’ve identified sensitive information regarding your company, its customers, and its business partners on the internet. You know you have a problem and realize that your company is not prepared to mount a coordinated response.
Responding to these incidents, and knowing what to do, depends on advance preparation. Join us for a webinar on data breach response. Data breaches are an omnipresent risk for business. Attendees will come away from the program with a better understanding of the practical and legal challenges arising from data breaches, including disruption to basic business functions, regulatory fines, contractual penalties, million-dollar class actions, and loss of consumer confidence. Our seasoned panel has experience with large companies and complex data systems and will walk you through the elements of an effective and flexible incident response plan, including:
- Creation and leadership of incident response teams
- Retention and coordination with forensic, cybersecurity, public-relations, and notification firms
- Notice to affected persons such as consumers and business partners as well as to US federal, state and non-US regulators
- Coordination with US Attorney offices, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Secret Service, Federal Trade Commission (FTC), state attorney generals, regulators and other government agencies
- Coordination with auditors, senior executives and boards of directors
- Development of public-relations and communications strategies
- Management of post-breach cyber assessments and remediation counseling
- Responses to governmental investigations
- Defense of class-action and multidistrict litigation
The panel will feature forensic response expert Pierson Clair (Senior Director of Cyber Risk at Kroll), in-house privacy expert William Dummett (Chief Privacy Officer, Genesys Telecommunications), Robert Kang (Loyola Law School Los Angeles, Cybersecurity professor), and Michael Morgan (Partner, Co-Chair of Global Privacy and Cybersecurity at MWE).
