2019 Cybersecurity & Privacy Risk Management Series | Cybersecurity Assessment: Technical and Legal Considerations


Boards of directors, senior executives and in-house lawyers have become increasingly aware that cybersecurity is not merely a matter for the IT department; rather, it is a significant legal and business risk that drives company policy. To manage this risk and comply with legal and contractual obligations, companies are engaging in comprehensive external privacy and cybersecurity assessments conducted under privilege. In these assessments, legal compliance considerations are integrated with technical insights, customer relationships and even human resources in assessing and ensuring the security of the business.

Join McDermott’s and BDO’s legal and technical panel to discuss:

  • Current privacy and cybersecurity trends
  • Compulsory vs. voluntary cyber assessments: what is required?
  • Timeline and structure of assessments
  • Roles of the lawyers and technical consultants
