Privacy & Pwnage: Managing Privacy Law Risks Before and After a Data Breach

Government regulation and class action litigation in the area of privacy law has increased dramatically over the last few years, particularly with respect to data breaches. Companies are now exposed to large risks and liabilities for data breaches, as demonstrated by the recent class action lawsuit against Ashley Madison for $760,000,000. In this talk, you’ll get an overview of the law of privacy as it relates to data breaches, and learn how you as a security professional can help mitigate legal risk both before and after a data breach occurs. Privacy & Pwnage
