Employee benefit plans are vulnerable to cyberattacks by criminals who seek to access sensitive participant data and plan asset information, which often are shared with multiple third parties. Plan sponsors, fiduciaries, and service providers have unique responsibilities under federal and state laws to prevent, mitigate, and respond to these ever-increasing cybersecurity threats.
In this webinar, Ballard Spahr Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation and Privacy and Data Security attorneys will discuss:

  • Various cyber threats facing employee benefit plans;
  • Cybersecurity considerations for fiduciaries of employee benefit plans; and
  • Best practices to prepare for and respond to cybersecurity incidents.
