Join us for our inaugural, in-person program, where legal, in-house, and technical professionals will delve into the latest cyber and privacy topics and trends.

Panelists will share insight into understanding executive and legal functions during the incident response process and strategies for how businesses can navigate the changing state and federal privacy landscape. A roundtable discussion with business and industry leaders will offer actionable tips for building a reasonable security program, balancing privacy compliance demands, and managing external customer and vendor risk, as part of a larger proactive organizational strategy.

This course has been approved for 2.0 hours of CLE credit with ethics for the state of Illinois.

8:00-8:30 – Breakfast

8:30 – 9:30 – Incident Response From the Executives’ and General Counsel’s Perspective

There are two types of companies out there, those that have been breached and those that haven’t. With 50 state data breach notification laws, various federal laws, numerous contractual requirements, increased enforcement actions and a rise in class actions it is incredibly important companies respond in the appropriate manner to a security incident or data breach. The first hours for an organization are critical, and a misstep at the beginning of the response process can mean increased liability and damages down the road. The panel will discuss how and why executives and general counsel must involve them in the incident response process, best practices for mitigating potential damages, and provide steps on how attendees can best protect their organization.

9:30 – 9:40 – Break

9:40 – 10:40 – Changing State Privacy Landscape: Actionable Compliance Strategies for In-House Professionals

With five enacted comprehensive state privacy laws, and more than 20 pending state privacy law proposals, businesses face increasing challenges understanding what privacy laws may apply to their business, and how to juggle their respective requirements. The panel will talk through actionable compliance strategies to deploying an enterprise-wide data privacy program, and provide real-world insight into how to grow a culture of privacy compliance within your organization. The panel will end by anticipating hot privacy trends and topics.

10:50 – 11:50 – Roundtable Discussion
