Legal Essentials: An Introduction to Data Privacy, Cybersecurity and Third Party Vendor Management

With the rise of data breaches and regulatory enforcement, businesses must acknowledge cybersecurity and data privacy issues as significant business risks.

Business, client, and employee information are some of the most valuable resources a business holds, making them priorities to protect. Companies that fail to take proper precautions are more likely to fall victim to a data breach, governmental enforcement action, or class action lawsuit, each of which is costly and damaging.
