BLOOMBERG BNA WEBINAR EVENT: Data Breach and Privacy Litigation: The Recent Successes and Failures of Common Defenses and Claims
Tuesday, August 20, 2013
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM ET
Bloomberg BNA is pleased to present this program in partnership with HB Litigation Conferences LLC.
In recent years there has been a proliferation of class action lawsuits arising from data breaches and other privacy-related statutory violations. Plaintiffs in these cases have traditionally found it difficult to demonstrate the requisite injury to move these cases beyond the pleadings phase. In a number of recent actions, however, courts have been more favorable to plaintiffs. This panel of outside and corporate counsel will discuss the trends in data security and privacy-related litigation, including the principles of law that have developed as a result of the litigation, the successful (and unsuccessful) causes of action and defenses, and the important factors that courts look to in determining whether such cases should be allowed to proceed.
Monitoring these litigation risks and understanding how they can be minimized is an important role for corporate counsel and risk managers of any company that collects, stores, uses, and disposes of sensitive information such as medical, financial, personal, and proprietary information. This program will inform attendees of the risks and provide guidance on how these risks will likely continue to develop.
