IAPP Privacy Academy: Will you be there?

Published: September 25, 2012 by Michael Bruemmer

You see stories about data breaches all the time. Earlier this month, in fact, a small medical facility was fined $1.5 million following a data breach that resulted from a stolen, unencrypted laptop. News like that makes security, legal and compliance professionals shudder. But could the medical facility have avoided that fine? Absolutely. What about after a data breach? What happens during the recovery and remediation process? Do you know what you should do and shouldn’t do to avoid fines and litigation?

Join us for an interactive discussion on key data breach mistakes and how to overcome them on October 11 at the IAPP Privacy Academy in San Jose. Also, stop by the Experian booth to meet our team, network with your peers, and enter for a chance to win an Apple® MacBook Air.

I will be participating on the data breach panel to discuss the best ways to respond to a breach to avoid potential fines and legal action. The panel will also discuss how to protect your customers or patients to maintain their loyalty and how to recover losses through insurance. You’ll leave with:

  • Key lessons from significant breaches and  issues arising from their investigations, including consequences and challenges
  • Best practices for handling some of the most unusual situations
  • Tips for handling notification and communication effectively
