Securing the Bottom Line: Data Security and Risk Mitigation Strategies in a Constantly Evolving World

Every day the headlines broadcast another cyberattack on an organization resulting in the theft of digital information (e.g., sensitive personal or healthcare information; intellectual property; trade secrets; and confidential business, financial and legal information) or the disruption of government and business functions. According to IBM Security, the average cost of a data breach in the United States is $8.64 million, which is more than double the average global figure. For most organizations, the stakes can be even higher, as they will have to defend their data privacy and protection policies and practices in enforcement actions brought by the varying federal, state and international regulators as well as in class action and shareholder derivative lawsuits. What to do?

In our webinar, join Manatt cybersecurity senior advisor Kevin R. Powers for a moderated discussion with privacy and data security partner and co-leader Scott T. Lashway, counsel Kaylee Cox Bankston and Phil Aldrich, director of enterprise risk management and governance, risk and compliance, Dell EMC, covering the latest updates on security and privacy regulations, as well as the compliance and mitigation strategies that can help U.S. companies navigate the tangled legal web and develop a risk-based approach to cybersecurity to not only successfully respond to, mitigate and recover from a data breach, but also to protect their bottom lines.
