"Cybersecurity: Working the Calm Before the Storm"

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

2:00 - 2:45 pm, eastern [archive and transcript to follow]

Cybersecurity incidents are happening more frequently - and are becoming more serious. And accountability for them is running all the way to the top. So the time to prepare is before they happen. This program will tackle senior management's & the board's role, as well as disclosure and liability issues. And much more. Also see next week's related webcast.

Join these experts:

  • Paul Ferrillo, Partner, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP
  • Dave Lynn, Editor, TheCorporateCounsel.net and Partner, Morrison & Foerster LLP
  • Harriet Pearson, Partner, Hogan Lovells LLP

Among other topics, this program will cover:

  • What risk management processes should senior management ensure is in place? To what extent should the NIST Framework be considered?
  • What is the board's role in this? Which board committee is responsible?
  • What type of cybersecurity training should be conducted for all employees?
  • What does D&O insurance cover - and not?
  • How should you memorialize your preparedness, both at the manager and board level?
  • What should companies be disclosing about their cybersecurity preparation? What about after an incident occurs?
