Security scandals in the news these days, including the Ashley Madison hack and security breaches in recent months involving major retailers, show how important this issue is. Most organizations, regardless of their size, reputation or best efforts, will at one time or another be confronted with a security breach affecting personal information under their custody or control. It is therefore critical for corporate lawyers to respond effectively and take the required measures to support organizations in such a situation, including the power to decide whether to make fast and effective use of extraordinary remedies to safeguard and preserve trade secrets and strategic confidential information.

This presentation will help corporate lawyers learn more about:

  • The different steps to take following a data security breach, including an assessment of the breach as well as the necessary emergency measures, and how to determine the impact and risk of damages for the individuals affected, the organization and the general public.
  • The notification aspects; namely, who to inform, how to do it depending on the context and the information that must be included in a notification.
  • The various strategies to adopt in the event of a breach involving several jurisdictions or a number of parties.
  • The type of assistance that can be provided to individuals affected by the breach as well as best practices for preparing a communication plan.
  • Prevention as well as various damage mitigation strategies that can be implemented by the organization as a whole.
  • Extraordinary remedies such as Anton Piller orders and Norwich orders making it possible to identify an unknown third party causing prejudice to a business and seizures before judgment authorized by the court allowing the seizure of data belonging to such a party.

In addition, scenarios will be presented and discussed in order to apply the proposed tools to concrete cases.
