International Data Security Laws and Strategies

BABC Privacy and Information Security Team Leader, Paige Boshell, will be a featured speaker this week at DRI’s inaugural Data Breach and Privacy Seminar in Chicago, Illinois. She will deliver a presentation entitled “International Data Security Laws and Strategies,” exploring the complexities of international data security laws in the context of a cyber attack. The discussion will examine how a data breach in today’s global online economy can have worldwide ramifications.

In the financial fallout of the Target data breach, many companies face the challenging task of managing ever-changing regulations, laws, data security and privacy standards, new theories of liability related to data breach, and a wide array of insurance offerings designed to protect against cyber attacks and data breaches. At the seminar, data security and privacy professionals and industry leaders will provide valuable insights into high-stakes data security and privacy issues.


Todd Presnell Quoted in Law360 Article Regarding a MasterCard Ruling that Redefines Privilege Limits for In-House Counsel

Litigator Todd Presnell was recently quoted in the Law360 article “MasterCard Ruling Warns In-House Attorneys on Privilege Limits,” which explores the ramifications of a new ruling by the New York federal court, holding that documents shared with in-house counsel are not necessarily privileged.

“Many companies will assume, because in-house lawyers are on an email or at a meeting, that the content is privileged. That's not the case at all,” Presnell said. “This is a perfect example of where courts will not apply blanket privilege. The judge here split out the business communications from the legal communications."
