Cyber Liability

Classroom
March 1, 2016
Philadelphia, PA


Overview

 

Whether it is the reputational impact of lost health care records or the balance sheet impact of a plant shut down, Boards cannot afford to ignore cyber risk.   Board members are being told by regulators, investors, and counsel that they have to deal with cyber risk but not much guidance is given on what that entails. Please join our panel for an interactive discussion on Cyber security focused on implications for the boardroom and best practices for board oversight. The discussion will provide insight from consulting experts in strategy, governance, and enterprise risk management related to cyber risk.  It will also include the perspective of a General Counsel that has been through a cyber event.
