Update on Cyberattacks and Data Breaches Provides Useful Information for Retail Industry

On February 3, 2015, Gibson Dunn attorneys Ryan Bergsieker and Richard Cunningham delivered a presentation to help retailers and other companies prepare for the possibility of a cyberattack or data breach—including minimizing the exposure associated with the Federal Trade Commission investigations, state Attorneys General inquiries, and private lawsuits that commonly follow a breach.  The presentation was focused on how data breaches occur, the legal standards enforced by government regulators regarding whether companies’ cyber-defenses are adequate, and—most importantly—the steps companies can take to minimize the risk of a breach and be prepared if a breach occurs.  The slides used in the presentation can be found here.
