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.

A good 30(b)(6) can have a dramatic effect on a variety of litigation issues, from privilege issues to dispositive ones. Finding the “right” witness (or group of witnesses) who have the knowledge and skillset to be a good deponent can be a challenge, especially for complicated issues like cybersecurity and privacy practices.
In this webinar, the second in our four-part privacy litigation series, David Saunders, partner in McDermott’s Global Privacy & Cybersecurity Practice Group, and Hailey Drescher, senior consultant at Trask Consulting, will discuss how to identify the best people in your organization to serve as witnesses who will explain your cybersecurity and privacy practices and how to help them prepare to be a great testifier.
Topics will include:
- Identifying who in your organization knows the inner workings of your technology, cybersecurity and privacy practices
- How to prepare your witnesses for the litigation process
- Best practices for empowering your witnesses with tips and tricks that will enhance their testimony
