In this episode of Thomson Reuters Down the Hall with Practical Law, Privacy & Data Security Senior Legal Editor Mel Gates covers cybersecurity and privacy issues. Mel recalls the career journey that led her to Practical Law and covers why it can be challenging for organizations to understand and comply with the myriad regulations surrounding data security. She explains how the most successful companies handle compliance, breaking down which industries are especially at risk for data breaches and why they are attractive targets for hackers. She also discusses how lawyers can help companies understand the fiscal and legal repercussions associated with a data breach and aid them in managing that risk. Mel closes the interview with a conversation about current trends in regulatory obligations and data breach litigation and provides resources that you can use to stay up to date with changes in data security regulations.
