NextGen Medium-Rectangle-300×250-3a

Data breaches from high profile companies, including law firms, generate worldwide headlines and can severely damage your business’s reputation.

Data security, data privacy, and cybersecurity are critical issues for your company to consider in today’s business landscape. Data breaches from high profile companies, including law firms, generate worldwide headlines and can severely damage your business’s reputation. In certain industries, a patchwork of state and federal laws and regulations may cover your business, leading to compliance headaches.

This Financial Poise CYBERSECURITY & DATA PRIVACY 2018 series explores the various laws and regulations which govern businesses both in the US and abroad, as well as how to implement and enforce an information security policy to protect your company and limit any damage from a data breach.

The first episode of the series, Introduction to US Privacy and Data Security: Regulations and Requirements, airs on September 24th at 11:00 AM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Elizabeth Vandesteeg of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger. She is joined by Matthew Erickson of SpiderOak, Jan Hertzberg of BKD LLP, Cassandra Porter of Cognizant Technology Solutions, and Michael Riela of Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse & Hirschtritt LLP.

There is no federal law governing privacy and data security applicable to all US citizens. Rather, individual states and regulatory agencies have created a patchwork of protections that may overlap in certain industries.

This webinar provides an overview of the many privacy and data security laws and regulations which may impact your business, from the state law protecting personal information to regulations covering the financial services industry to state breach notification laws.

The CYBERSECURITY & DATA PRIVACY 2018 webinar series is produced by Financial Poise.™ Future episodes in the series include "Introduction to EU General Data Protection Regulation: Planning, Implementation, and Compliance" airing on October 22nd, "How to Build and Implement your Company's Information Security Program," airing on November 19th, and "Data Breach Response: Before and After the Breach," airing on December 17th. Each episode airs at 11:00 AM CST. All episodes premiere live through West LegalEdCenter and then are made available on-demand.

As with every Financial Poise Webinar, each episode is delivered in Plain English understandable to investors, business owners, and executives without much background in these areas, yet is also valuable to attorneys, accountants, and other seasoned professionals. And, as with every Financial Poise Webinar, each episode brings you into engaging, sometimes humorous, conversations designed to entertain as it teaches. Each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, so that participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all episodes.
