With businesses experiencing some of the most destructive breaches in 2014, it is no wonder the White House named cybersecurity a top priority for business and government in 2015. It would be naïve to believe that all breaches can be stopped, but companies can mitigate the damage wreaked by cybersecurity incidents ‹ from both the business and legal perspective ‹ by being diligent in establishing information and infrastructure security programs, being equipped and prepared to detect and respond to breaches, and having relationships with experts to handle technical, business and legal aspects of incidents. The goal of this presentation is to equip in-house counsel with a checklist of action items that companies must take to be prepared, including the additional considerations involved when an incident has an international impact. Ffion Flockhart, Partner, London, Norton Rose Fulbright Boris Segalis, Partner, New York, and Co-Chair, Data Protection, Privacy & Access to Information, United States, Norton Rose Fulbright
