SolarWinds – Lasting Impact on Data Privacy & Third Party Vendor Management
May 5 @ 5:15 pm - 7:00 pm EDT
Session will begin at 5:30pm.
In this single incident we have seen a convergence of what cybersecurity and data privacy experts have been speaking about for years; namely the terrifying reality of prolonged access to a system and a robust supply chain breach.
One of the most important considerations in cybersecurity does not involve your own direct network security; it involves your partners and vendors. The ease, convenience and cost effectiveness of outsourcing certain business functions frequently overshadows the potential pitfalls lurking in using outside third-parties and vendors.
During this session, Rebecca Rakoski, Managing Partner at XPAN Law Partners, will discuss the following:
- Legal and regulatory implications as we “unpack” the SolarWinds breach
- The “reach of the breach” and the legal ramifications in terms of contractual obligations, insurance coverage, and regulatory issues
- How SolarWinds could impact and influence data privacy and cybersecurity laws/best practices for the future
