The symposium this year will focus on addressing the hurdles companies face due to major corporate data breaches and the challenges that arise in safeguarding private customer and company information. Topics to be addressed will include:
Corporations Post Data- Breaches
Historically, circuit court decisions have been split in their application of federal law regarding mass corporate breaches, leaving many companies fearing that their outcome will be jurisdiction specific. This panel will discuss the application of federal law for issues such as standing, damages, and legislative intent.
Financial Repercussions of Data Hacks: Public Relations, Damages, and New Regulation
With each attack, impacted corporations have taken a major hit in their respective stock prices, public reputation, and litigation costs. This panel aims to discuss the financial implications of major data breaches and how new laws will impact their finances with respect to heightened security or calculations of damages.
Social and Ethical Impacts of Corporate Data Breaches
When private data has been accessed, concerns arise regarding financial security, preservation of identity, and public fear. This panel will discuss the social and ethical implications of major data breaches and the impact on individuals and the public.
