Company Computers Under Attack: Big Dollars and Private Data Are Being Stolen Every Day: What Are You Doing About It?

This seminar will address innovative and proactive responses to potential cyber intrusions, including:

  • Advantages of using the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act to bring a civil action for a violation of the federal computer crime statute;
  • Relying on the Department of Justice to prosecute the Economic Espionage Act;
  • Proposed legislation pending in Congress to make theft of trade secrets a federal civil action;
  • Structuring corporate governance compliance to anticipate the variety of state breach notification requirements.

In addition to providing insightful legal context, we will provide practical tips on:

  • What to do before the hackers strike.
  • How to detect and investigate intrusions when they happen.
  • What to do when your data has been compromised or stolen.
  • How to prevent, detect and combat insider threats.
  • What legal tools can you use to stop hackers and thieves.
  • Do you contact law enforcement, and if so, when and how?
