Last Updated: February 26 2016

Cybersecurity for Lawyers, Corporate Counsel and Law Firms

Sullivan & Worcester Conference Center, New York, NY
March 29, 2016 (12:00 - 2:00 pm)

Sullivan & Worcester will host a seminar, "Practical Tips to Help Your Clients Prepare for a Potential Data Breach and Ensuing Litigation," in our New York office on March 29, 2016.

These days, for almost all companies, some form of data breach is, unfortunately, inevitable. However, there are certain steps that U.S. Courts and government regulators will expect both in-house counsel and outside attorneys to take before, during and after the breach. Making sure your clients implement these steps is imperative to minimizing the damages and fallout. This seminar will provide practical tips for formulating a useful Incident Response Plan that will hold up to legal scrutiny, determining the need and content of legal notifications, what to consider when working with a forensic expert, preserving the attorney-client privilege while investigating and remediating the breach, and making sure your client's cyber insurance covers the most likely risks.
