Cybersecurity touches every aspect of global consumer and corporate culture today. Preventing, preparing for, and responding to data breaches in real time is a chief concern for individuals, corporate leaders, and government regulators. Download the 2018 ACC Foundation: the State of Cybersecurity Report, underwritten by Ballard Spahr LLP, and learn what more than 600 corporate counsel say about their cybersecurity experiences, role, and practices.

Additional Information


Key findings include current cybersecurity practices, prevention, protection, and response from hundreds of companies across 33 countries.

Because today’s general counsel (GC), and chief legal officers (CLOs) are increasingly called on to guide their organizations and aid with thwarting cyber-attacks, they play a significant role in implementing best practices and regulations to prevent cyber-criminals from acquiring protected information. Knowing common practices, what works, and what your peers are doing is key in benchmarking and planning to protect your company from risk. Straddling business, IT, and legal, today’s corporate legal department is uniquely positioned to engage the multiple stakeholders that a robust data protection regime requires.
