L2 - Cybersecurity and Data Privacy in 2013

September 19, 2013 • Webinar

2013 has been a historic year for cybersecurity, privacy and data breach issues. From the NSA leaks, to US-China Cybersecurity Working Group, to countless Fortune 100 companies falling victim to hacking attacks, the pressure is on for companies to secure their handling of sensitive data.

This 90-minute webinar will provide federal agencies and government contractors with an overview of the current cybersecurity and data privacy environment, including an analysis of the current threat and recent developments in legislation and regulation. The webinar will also provide a more in-depth analysis of selected issues, to include HIPAA requirements for government contractors, state-specific privacy requirements, SEC disclosure duties for data breaches, cyber risk insurance, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies, Active Defense, and cloud computing for government contractors. In order to mitigate the risk of data breach, cyber theft, and the loss of trade secrets and other intellectual property, both the government agencies and private companies need to understand the sector-specific rules and requirements for information security, privacy and data protection. Only after the rules of the road are fully understood can agencies and contractors implement policies to mitigate the risk posed by cyber threats.

Gordon Griffin, Elliot Golding, Amelia Schmidt and Kate Molony are the presenters of this event.
