Disclosure of Breaches: The Legal and Business Ramifications of Explaining What You Did Wrong

On Tuesday, March 3, 2020, the Strauss Center and the Center for Enterprise and Policy Analytics (CEPA) at The University of Texas at Austin are pleased to welcome Mark Anderson, Senior Director of Business Operations at BlackBerry, for its "Cybersecurity Speaker Series." This talk is free and open to the public.

Anderson will discuss "Disclosure of Breaches: The Legal and Business Ramifications of Explaining What You Did Wrong." In the fist six months of 2018 there were 945 data breaches effecting 4.5 billion company records. The average cost to remediate a data breach in 2019 will be approximately $2.92 million dollars. Regardless of the type of breach businesses face a myriad of international, state, and local notification laws and regulations they must navigate. In determining how to respond to a data beach the business must negotiate four (4) key elements of that breach and the costs associated with them: Detection, Notification, Post Breach Response, and Lost Business. Anderson will discuss how the key issue in all of these decisions are the costs associated in the response and how best to deal with that cost versus the cost of doing nothing.
