Barbarians at the Gate: Class Action Avoidance and Mitigation for Data Breach

5/28/2014

Webinar

Seyfarth attorneys Bart A. Lazar, Robert B. Milligan and John P. Tomaszewski will present the third installment of its 2014 Trade Secrets and Data Protection Webinar series.  Please join us for a high level discussion as we take a closer look at avoidance and mitigation techniques for data breaches, including where the class action plaintiff’s bar is going and what potential defenses and strategies companies can employ in such lawsuits.

The expert Seyfarth panel will specifically address the following topics:

  • Building blocks for a Global Privacy Program. How to avoid breaches in the first place.
  • Incident Management. No program is perfect. What to do when an “Incident” happens and how to effectively handle data breach notifications, including addressing government investigations.
  • Class Action Defense. Just because you’ve handled the “Incident” doesn’t mean that it is over. How to best position your company when the class action data breach is filed, including effectively pursuing dispositive motions and addressing putative class certification issues.

This webinar is intended for businesses such as retailers, financial service providers, health care providers and energy companies with an interest in the future of data breach and cybersecurity litigation, regulation policy development.
