Economic espionage is growing as social media usage accelerates. Personal data of employees and customers, as well as proprietary company information can be breached. Criminals are after your corporate information and, increasingly, social media sites are where they look to get in. How do you respond? Data security breaches can cost billions in fines, notification of data subjects, governmental investigations, legal fees, loss of business reputation, credibility and, perhaps, trade secrets. Will your company be the next headline? This interactive program discusses: (a) an overview of the laws of data protection, ethical issues regarding security of client information, and remediation of breach; (b) the basics of incident response for multinational corporations under statutory and regulatory schemes within the E.U., Canada, Asia and South America; and (c) trends toward greater data protection and encryption requirements as electronic global commerce accelerates."
