Information breaches are a serious concern for businesses and consumers alike. Businesses risk losing customer data, trust and even revenue when a breach happens. For cunsumers, they risk getting personally identifiable data out in the open, which can be misused.

The talk will walk through the liabilities of each party involved in an information breach, what the best practices are and how can such a situation be handled.


1) What is an information breach? How do you monitor for a breach?
2) When do you make a breach public? How do you build a contingency plan?
3) How and when to notify affected consumers?
