Nearly all industries are confronted with data security and privacy concerns.  For private and non-regulated businesses, the protection of employee, customer and third-party information is of paramount importance.  An ever-changing technological landscape requires that businesses have solid plans in place to prevent and respond to data breaches quickly and efficiently.  In this complimentary one-hour webinar, Bill Roberts, Chair of Shipman & Goodwin’s Privacy and Data Protection team, will discuss steps businesses can take to navigate the legal and practical challenges data breaches present.
