ALM's Legaltech News and Corporate Counsel Presents Mid-Year Cybersecurity and Data Protection Legal Summit

NEW YORK, June 9, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In response to the escalating concerns of in-house and law firm counsel to cybersecurity threats and the desire of C-suites for legal counsel to have a thorough understanding of data protection strategies, ALM is offering the Mid-Year Cybersecurity and Data Protection Legal Summit on June 16 at the Harvard Club of New York, NY. The Summit is designed to provide counsel with a primer on breach response, ethics requirements for information security, cross-border data flows, class actions, cyberinsurance and government enforcement.

Counsel from Heartland Payment Systems, Macy's, Oracle, American Express, leading cybersecurity practice groups and a full range of government agencies will be on hand to provide guidance and answer questions in an intimate setting. The day will close with a moderated discussion between counsel from the Department of Commerce, Federal Trade Commission, Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Office of the New York State Attorney General.

The day will start with a 75-minute interactive "You've Been Hacked!" tabletop exercise where counsel will be challenged to respond to the gradual unraveling of a fact pattern. The audience will gain insight into data breach triage decision-making in the context of the incomplete information that accompanies real life incidents.

This event has limited seating to ensure high quality closed-room discussion and networking. Attendees are eligible for up to nine CLE credits including an ethics credit.
