Ernie will be moderating a panel on investigating and responding to data breaches. The discussion will include the required specialized skills and active coordination with a company’s IT personnel and external IT experts. Among the various federal laws to be considered when protected private information has been improperly accessed are the HIPAA/HITECH, and/or Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. The panel will also discuss the difficulty in preserving and maintaining the attorney-client and work-product privileges, among other considerations. This panel will address how such investigations differ from other types of investigations, what some of the reporting triggers involved are, and strategies for how companies can manage the negative publicity and litigation that such an event may engender.
