Cyber-Risk Management for General Business Lawyers

November 07, 2014 | 6.0 General CLE Credits

“Cyber-Risk”: financial, operational, political, and reputational risk of loss resulting from crimes or acts of war or terrorism using the universe of technologies involved in creating, processing, storing, and communicating data.

Overview

This program is built for attorneys to support: building business; bringing greater value to their clients; ability to talk with "management"; and issue spotting in the ever-evolving world of cyber-risk. Cyber-risk is no longer just an "I.T." issue but has become more and more part of the business lawyer's due diligence. This specially designed program will address, from a lawyer's perspective, issues such as: how rampant cybercrime can affect even the smallest business; cyber-risk issue-spotting for lawyers; allocating cyber-risk by contract; credit card indemnities, and other fraudulent payments schemes. If you are a business lawyer or work with a business (even your own) this program will provide you with critical information and tools.

Agenda

By "cyber-risk" we refer to financial, operational, political, and reputational risk of loss resulting from crimes or acts of war or terrorism using the universe of technologies involved in creating, processing, storing, and communicating data.
