This program will consider the legal, practical, and ethical
considerations implicated when a law firm suffers a data breach.
Topics to be covered include: statutes and common law duties
governing data security and privacy; current trends in mitigating
data privacy litigation risk; how a firm should consider preparing
and responding to a breach; what a firm may do to preserve
evidence; and the ethical duties related to cyber security,
including guidance provided by the various bar associations and
emerging law from cyber security breaches. The presentation will
also address how considerations change when a breach has a non-U.S.
competent, including under the EU's General Data Protection
Regulation, and the potential implications of Brexit.
