In-house lawyers in industries far beyond the tech world–such as financial services, pharmaceuticals, insurance, and consumer electronics, to name only a few–need practical guidance on the many ways that cybersecurity and privacy issues can affect all stages of business, from the valuation of data as an asset to the allocation of risk.

In response to this need, Lowenstein Sandler has expanded our annual program to include an even deeper dive into cybersecurity issues of special interest to GCs, CPOs, and CIOs. Our interdisciplinary group of privacy and data security specialists has teamed with in-house counsel to develop programming aimed to help corporations and executives navigate the potential risks, regulations, and benefits at stake, as well as best practices to address these issues.
