2013 has been a historic year for cybersecurity, privacy and data breach issues. From the President’s Executive Order, to the revised NIST security & privacy controls, and to the groundbreaking Mandiant report on cyber espionage, the pressure is on for companies to secure their handling of sensitive data.

In order to mitigate the risk of data breach, cyber theft, and the loss of trade secrets and other intellectual property, both the government agencies and private companies need to understand the sector-specific rules and requirements for information security, privacy, and data protection. Only after the rules of the road are fully understood can agencies and contractors implement policies to mitigate the risks posed by cyber threats.

Come join myself, Gordon Griffin, Amelia Schmidt, and Elliot Golding on September 19 at 1:00 PM Eastern for a 90-minute webinar providing federal agencies and government contractors with an overview of the current cybersecurity and data privacy environment. Our webinar will include an analysis of the cyber threat and recent developments in legislation and regulation, as well as discussion on some of today’s most pressing cyber issues:

• Active defense;
• HIPAA requirements;
• State-specific privacy regimes;
• SEC disclosure duties;
• Cyber risk insurance;
• Bring your own device (BYOD); and
• Cloud computing.

We will see you then!
