Data Security: Protecting Your Customers and Your Company In Dangerous Times

Tuesday, January 24, 2017, 6:00 PM
Anchin 1350 Broadway, New York, NY
Fee: Free for NYTECH members and sponsors. $20.00 for non-members

We have all heard of major instances of disclosure or loss of sensitive data brought about by any number of causes, including malicious software, phishing emails, ransom-ware, hacking attempts, mistaken deployment of computer equipment and improper use of the data. A data security incident can result in devastating damage to a company, its customers and potentially its principals. It can become an existential crisis for any business, large or small.

In this panel, we assemble a group of experts including lawyers in the field of digital data security law as well as engineers who specialize in maintaining and confirming the security of data processing systems and in responding to data security incidents. The goal of this panel is to provide the community with some practical insights – both legal and technical – in mitigating the risk of, planning for and dealing with data security incidents as the computing industry moves toward a cloud-based software as a service model.
