IT.CAN Teleconference Roundtable
Data Breaches and Identity Theft: A Legal Framework for Organizations
Please join us for the next session in our Roundtable series where our speaker will provide an expert view on how compliance with cybersecurity frameworks can differ from the legal notion of “reasonable cybersecurity”. This premise is critical because organizations that fail to reach this threshold expose themselves to lawsuits, and law firms have not been exempted.
