As technology drives innovation and transforms how we work, one the biggest challenges facing industry is how to ensure businesses are secure and data protected. The law in this area has rapidly developed, and advising on compliance and implementation requires careful handling. This 2 hour masterclass has been designed to walk you through the key practical and legal security rules and will help you discover more about how to deal with them in practice. We will also consider latest developments in data breach disputes, including group litigation and representative claims, and trends and developments in the insurance industry’s approach to cyber insurance.
