Business Law Journal Symposium 2015 part 1: Keynote

Business Law Journal Symposium 2015 Corporate Data Breaches: What Companies Can Learn from Recent High Profile Attacks Friday, November 6, 2015 Symposium Theme The increasing number of major corporate data breaches has created new challenges in terms of safeguarding private customer and company information. The public, the government, and the law are beginning to respond and attorneys will need to incorporate public concern, new governmental regulations, and recent and upcoming judicial opinions into their practices. The responses to recent high-profile breaches as well as official submission to the United States Supreme Court of Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins, the case that granted plaintiff Thomas Robins standing under the Fair Credit Reporting Act with only a speculative injury, represents a turning-point in corporate data management. Although the exact outcome is uncertain, experts in corporate law, professors on security law, and public-policy creators will discuss where they believe the field is headed and what is likely to have the greatest impact. Opening Remarks Dean Kevin Johnson: Dean of UC Davis School of Law Keynote Speaker: Justin N. Cain, CISSP: Cybersecurity Coordinator, Governor’s Office of Emergency Services
