Cybersecurity and the Law – A look at what the future holds

Whether it’s a private client list, a membership roll for a charity, or employee personal and health data, securely and confidentially processing data is one of the most challenging issues facing companies and organisations in every sector.

At this breakfast briefing cybersecurity specialist Christian Toon and 5 Essex Chambers’s team of data protection and information law barristers discussed:

  • An overview of the external and internal threats that organisations face in 2023
  • A reflection on the cyber breaches in industry, attack patterns and regulatory priorities from a leading law firm's perspective over the last year
  • 10 things to take away to make your business and personal lives more secure and prepare for possible breaches
  • Challenges for and liabilities of employers in securely retaining data, including developments in respect of vicarious liability as it applies to data
  • The pains and penalties of disclosing data to third parties, and the interplay between cybersecurity and corporate liability
