Course DescriptionWith most employee data and customer information now being stored electronically, data breach has become a big issue for employers, employees, and the general public. Hackers place the security of millions of people in jeopardy every year. For businesses, data breach can mean the exposure of confidential information and trade secrets, damage to reputation, and exposure to liability. With recent examples that include Home Depot, AT&T, and Morgan Stanly, it’s clear that no company’s data is entirely secure.
In this program, outside and in-house counsel will get an overview of data breach and the security issues that affect their clients/employers. Viewers will learn how to evaluate the safety of electronic data, develop a data loss prevention plan, and best practices to mitigate harm in the event of a breach.
