Webinar: Data Breach: The First 48 Hours

Please share:

This program offers 1 MCLE credit. You must register in advance to participate.

What a company does in the first 48 hours of a data breach will set the stage for three major confrontations – regulatory investigations, private lawsuits, and PR damage control. From having a detailed and well understood Incident Response Plan in place, to understanding when and how to call in law enforcement, data breach vendors, and outside counsel, this webinar will cover best practices and tips for the in-house counsel hoping never to need them.
