  • Jersey City, NJ (1888PressRelease) July 06, 2017 - The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: Standing in Data Breach Class Actions: What the Future Holds.

    Event Synopsis:
    With today’s relentless sophistication and proliferation of large-scale data breaches, more companies envision consumer class actions to be the next significant trend in litigation. One of the threshold challenges plaintiffs must overcome in data breach class actions is establishing Article III standing to sue in federal court. In past years, data breach cases were often dismissed by the federal courts due to lack of standing. Recently, data breach plaintiffs are encountering greater success in meeting the threshold standing requirements. The federal courts, however, have not been uniform in applying standing principles. As a result, standing issues in data breach consumer class actions, along with confounding results from various courts, will continue to loom over the heads of companies.

    Thus, it is imperative for companies to understand the current data breach climate and to learn how to ward off possible litigation risks.

    In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an overview of the latest trends and critical issues surrounding data breach class actions. Speakers will share helpful insights on how to analyze standing issues in these cases and will offer best practices on how to implement effective data privacy policies to minimize potential liabilities while ensuring compliance with applicable laws.

    Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
    • Understanding the Current Data Breach Climate
    • Standing and the Injury-in-fact Requirement
    • Notable Cases and Recent Court Decisions
    • Key Issues, Considerations, and Trends
    • Litigation Risks, Liabilities, and Settlement Costs
