Cybersecurity and Privacy
Every organization today, of virtually every size, in virtually every industry, has cyber security concerns. Data breaches and hacks are a recurring headline. We hear about the theft and loss of sensitive and personal information and intellectual property by purposeful criminal outsiders, disgruntled insiders, and even mistaken employees. President Obama has rightfully said that, “America’s economic prosperity in the 21st century will depend on Cyber Security.”
Join digital forensic and cyber security investigator Rob Kleeger and cyber attorney Khizar A. Sheikh, Esq. as they discuss current trends in Cyber Security and privacy, how these trends impact the protection of intellectual property assets, and other hot-button issues, including Cyber Security due diligence in M&A and how it goes hand-in-hand with IP due diligence, and the status of Cyber Security patents in light of the U.S. Supreme Court Alice decision and USPTO initiatives. Rob and Khizar will also share practical strategies and solutions that you can be aware of to lessen the threat and mitigate the losses from these events.
