At The Podium
The developing regulatory and legal landscape around cybersecurity issues
Cybersecurity is one of America’s fastest-growing industries. News reports, periodicals, online blogs/journals, and emails are filled with warnings and stories of disastrous cyber attacks stealing everything from client data to state secrets. Trojans, unpatched software, phishing, network-traveling worms, and advanced persistent threats are most common – but necessarily the most devastating. Unfortunately, there is no one U.S. law regulating privacy and the collection, use, processing, disclosure, and security of Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Instead, companies must navigate a patchwork of ever-changing federal and state laws and regulations and common law principles to understand this complicated and constantly evolving area of the law.
While speaking at the ”Cybersecurity: Facing the Threat,” a CPE seminar sponsored by the Office of the Oklahoma State Auditor & Inspector on August 18, 2016, McAfee & Taft litigation attorney Matthew Paque reviews a few of the more important laws and issues associated with the breaches of personally identifiable information (PII).
