The frequency and severity of consequences of cybercrime and cyberattack have for the first time made data security the number one legal concern of both in-house counsel and corporate directors of public companies, according to a 2012 study of almost 2,000 general counsel and 11,000 corporate directors conducted by Corporate Board Member and FTI Consulting.
To assist general counsels and their staffs in their efforts to address cyber risks, a national advisory board of professionals who deal with cybersecurity daily has created the inaugural Cybersecurity Law Institute, This wide-ranging, two-day program will provide in-house and outside counsel with the practical, pragmatic advice they need to effectively address today’s major cybersecurity challenges. Bringing together corporate officials, government advisors, law enforcement experts, and privacy analysts, this program will provide participants with a blueprint for managing cyber threats.
The keynote speaker is Judith A. Miller, member, Markle Task Force on National Security in the Information Age and co-chair, ABA Cybersecurity Task Force, who will provide her perspective on the cypbersecurity challenges and the purpose and limitations of the current and evolving legal framework. A second keynote address will be presented by General Keith B. Alexander, commander, U.S. Cyber Command, director, National Security Agency, and chief of Central Security Service, who will offer an overview of the national security cyber strategy and the role the private sector can play.
