This course provides practical information that you can incorporate into your practice in helping to protect and prepare your firm, your organization, or your clients to respond to data privacy and security incidents, data loss, and to provide a defensible position for any potential resultant litigation. In this course, I will provide an overview of the network of rules and regulations that form the United States privacy laws, discuss the types of incidents that you may face within your own firm or organization that your clients may face, discuss how you can take steps to prevent or mitigate a potential breach, what you need to do to be prepared for the inevitable, and how you can position your organization or firm to be in the best most defensible position post-breach.
