Global Privacy & Cybersecurity Resource Center

Now more than ever, organizations must be focused on the privacy and security of the personal data they hold. Businesses in nearly all industries–from healthcare to financial institutions and from high-tech to brick-and-mortar retailers–are increasingly accelerating their digital transformation into Big Data players. At the same time, an increasingly complex landscape of US and international data privacy laws leaves a growing web of compliance uncertainties. The rapid shift to remote work due to the COVID-19 global pandemic has also created a ripe opportunity for cybercriminal actors to strike, leaving businesses vulnerable to expensive ransomware and other damaging cyberattacks.

McDermott’s premier Global Privacy & Cybersecurity team leads clients through the complex—and often unanticipated—regulatory, compliance and transactional challenges that govern their valuable data assets. Combining deep experience operating within highly regulated environments with a practical business-focused approach to navigating the rapidly evolving data privacy environment, we help clients develop creative solutions to regulatory obstacles and leverage their valuable data assets to drive change and innovation.

REGULATORS MOUNT UP! RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN GOVERNMENT OVERSIGHT OF CYBERSECURITY

October 11, 2022

Government agencies at the state and federal levels are increasingly training their sights on the cybersecurity resiliency of companies in an array of industries. The US Securities and Exchange Commission has proposed rules on cybersecurity risk management, strategy, governance and incident disclosure for public companies.

Federally regulated banking organizations must now notify their primary federal regulator of qualifying computer-security incidents within 36 hours of discovery. The Federal Trade Commission has released a statement emphasizing that it intends to “use its full legal authority” to pursue companies that fail to take reasonable steps to protect consumer data from exposure as a result of known vulnerabilities. In addition, there are significant rules covering critical pipeline owners/operators in the transportation sector from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and the Transportation Security Administration, respectively. And now, state attorney generals are following suit.

Join this webinar, as Scott Ferber, a partner with McDermott’s Global Privacy & Cybersecurity team, and Matt Gorham, leader of PwC’s Cyber & Privacy Innovation Institute and former Assistant Director of the FBI, for an engaging discussion on recent developments in government oversight of cybersecurity, including key practical considerations for this complex regulatory landscape.
