As cyberattacks and data security breaches continue to grab headlines, Human Resources and labor and employment law professionals have an increasingly important role to play in managing their companies' information security risks. Employees continue to be the number one cause (and victims) of reported data incidents across the country. HR professionals and in-house lawyers are usually the first responders when incidents occur and a key first line of defense in prevention.

In this webinar, we will review what HR professionals and their counsel should do when they receive that call, and what they can do to help prevent these incidents from occurring in the future.
