With the increase in high-profile data security breaches, cybersecurity has become an increasing focus of corporate governance. Senior business executives, including Boards of Directors, are expected to play a fundamental role in ensuring that a company has appropriate policies and procedures in place to address risks associated with information security, including data breaches, and respond to cybersecurity attacks.

Ballard Spahr partners Katayun Jaffari and Phil Yannella and of counsels Kim Phan and Odia Kagan will discuss practical steps advisors and company executives can take to satisfy heightened regulatory expectations and to help reduce the likelihood and scope of information security incidents for their corporations. The panel will also discuss best practices for cybersecurity governance, considerations in securities reporting of cybersecurity risk, and the rise of derivative lawsuits associated with data breaches.
