"Responding to a Cyber Security Breach"
James Giszczak, Member - McDonald Hopkins and Raj Patel, Partner - Plante Moran
We have all heard on the news regarding the massive data breaches at major companies such as Neiman Marcus, Home Depot, Sony and Target. Despite the increased awareness about cyber security, data breaches are still happening. Hackers and company errors can lead to the exposure of sensitive information.
Human Resource professionals have access to a variety of employee and/or customer related information. Do you know what information must be protected? How do you securely exchange this information with your stakeholders? If you or someone at your company experiences a data breach, how do you respond?
James Giszczak with McDonald Hopkins and Raj Patel with Plante Moran will help us understand the various areas of data breaches within companies, the laws regarding what information should be protected, and they will take us through a roadmap from discovery of a data breach to handling the long-term consequences.
