The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) increases organizations’ obligations to a new level and also adopts, for the first time, specific breach notification guidelines. Cybersecurity readiness and effective responses are no longer the exclusive domain of IT departments -these are now board-level concerns.  Regardless of industry sector, size or commercial focus, companies not only need to fortify their IT systems, but also must ensure that cybersecurity best practices and incident response training become part of the corporate DNA.

Squire Patton Boggs Data Privacy & Cybersecurity practice will host a panel discussion on 14 November 2017 in our London office.  This session will focus on how companies should go about establishing a framework for minimising the risk of breach, developing an actionable and effective Incident Response Plan, and evaluating cyber insurance options.

The program will be moderated by practice co-chair, Ann LaFrance and will include panelists from Accenture, Paragon Brokers, Hill + Knowlton and Cognosec GmbH.

Seats are limited. Please contact Holly Bird (T +44 207 655 1381) for further information or if you are interested in attending.
