By all accounts, corporate data security risks are only getting more frequent and more severe. New technologies and practices—cloud computing, mobile devices, big data analytics, global outsourcing and BYOD—give criminals and international enemies new ways to hack and steal trade secrets, state secrets and individuals’ private information.

No longer is data security simply an IT issue; it is a vital business matter that is not given regular attention by the vast majority of CEOs. The Ponemon Institute puts the average cost of a breach at $6.7 million.

Our panel comprised of a chief privacy officer formerly with the Department of Homeland Security, an assistant attorney general, a vice president with a major cyber risk insurance carrier, and the head of a law firm’s privacy practice who previously served as corporate compliance counsel and as a state prosecutor, discussed:

  • Creating a data inventory for your organization
  • How to get a handle on your network infrastructure
  • The process of obtaining insurance
  • Reacting when a data breach or hacking incident occurs
  • Appropriate reporting to state attorneys general, insurance carriers, customers and others
  • Strategies for operating in emerging and high-risk markets
  • Meaningful data forensics and how best to preserve data following a breach


  • Oliver Brew, CIPP/US, CIPM, Vice President, Specialty Casualty
  • David Katz, Partner and Head, Privacy and Information Security Practice Group
  • John Kropf, Senior Counsel, Privacy and Information Governance


  • Adam Miller, CIPP/US, Supervising Deputy Attorney General, Privacy Enforcement and Protection Unit
