What Attorneys Can Do For Your InfoSec Team

November 17, 2020 – 12:45PM EST

What qualifies as a breach vs. an incident? When does an investigation need attorney-client privilege? Do I need to make a bitstream copy, or is an image enough? If these questions have ever come up in your department, you likely had to call someone in Legal, or even outside counsel. Over the past five years, the need for legal insight in information security has gone from a nice-to-have to a must-have. Just some of the areas where attorneys can assist you include incident response/breach notification, contract negotiations, policy writing and review, and working with insurance carriers. In this presentation, information security legal veterans will explain what attorneys can do for your team and how they can advance your department’s mission.
