Event Detail
Kimberly Kiefer Peretti, Donald Houser
May 23-24, 2018
Georgetown University Law Center
Washington, D.C.

Kim Peretti will be moderating the session “We Need to Investigate: Overseeing a Cyber Investigation."

It’s not a matter of if, it is a matter of when you will need to advise on the conduct of an internal investigation into a cybersecurity incident. This session will arm you with the key concepts you need to keep in mind when managing a crisis, such as how to protect attorney-client privilege, what kinds of notes to maintain, and how to meet heightened expectations for how lawyers advise clients in these situations.

Specifically, this session will review:

  • Best in class approaches to managing cyber crisis events that involve international exposure, operational impact to the enterprise, vulnerability disclosure, and both insider and external involvement.
  • The effectiveness of different response methods and how to work with law enforcement.
  • A practitioner checklist to develop an effective incident response management protocol.

Donald Houser will be a speaker in the session “State of the Law: 2017-2018 Cybersecurity Law Review.”

The past year has brought an explosion of cyber regulatory changes, civil lawsuits, and enforcement action. This session will provide an overview of these developments for the United States and the global landscape. From the New York regulation covering information security, to the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Japan’s Personal Information Protection Act, and others around the globe, the past year has seen significant regulatory changes. This panel will discuss how practitioners should react to these sweeping changes. The panel will also address key developments in data breach litigation and information security related enforcement actions in the U.S. and around the world.
