Why You Should Call In

The sheer volume of cyber-vulnerable data has increased exponentially with smart phones, proliferated data centers and mass storage. Threats related to privacy, piracy, and security follow the trail of information delivery and storage through mobile and other media. Much if not all such data is now vulnerable to cyber attacks, whether from criminals or others. As a result, technology contracting in the digital age requires an acute awareness of the vulnerability of data to cyber attacks and effective provisions guarding against post-attack liability.

This 90-minute Advanced Practice Skills TeleBriefing features expert technology and IP practitioners with substantial experience in both cybersecurity risk management and complex contractual issues. Discussions will cover strategies for drafting technology contracts to include provisions that adequately prepare corporations to respond to future cyber attacks.

As recent attacks on Target, the New York Times and other household institutions have shown, best practices for protecting against cyber attacks won't always be effective. With the likelihood of future cyber attacks on corporate targets all but inevitable, the strategic guidance provided by this TeleBriefing will be invaluable.
