    Event Synopsis:
    The business landscape has been a common ground for cyber-related threats such as hacking, data theft, and privacy infiltration. Such threats are perilous for many companies. Hence, it is of utmost importance that businesses and their counsel are familiar and well-versed with the existing statutes governing anti-hacking and privacy protection.

    Anti-hacking and privacy rights are intensified through federal laws such as the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), Stored Communications Act (SCA), Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), and the Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA). These laws establish and promote heightened regulation on privacy protections and data security. However, these acts also include parameters that businesses must be wary of to avoid legal liabilities.

    Join a panel of key thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group as they bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of anti-hacking and privacy laws. Speakers, among other things, will present risk mitigation techniques and best compliance practices to help practitioners in a rapidly evolving legal climate.

    Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
    • Anti-Hacking and Privacy Laws: An Overview
    • Key Provisions, Scope, and Limitations
    • Red Flags
    • Risk Mitigation Techniques
    • Best Compliance Practices
