Bloomberg BNA Publishes Cybersecurity Litigation Treatise
New Book Assists Attorneys in Mitigating Risk Associated with Cybersecurity-Related Liability
ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bloomberg BNA today announced the publication of "Cybersecurity Litigation: Consumer Data Protection and Privacy," which helps attorneys understand the liabilities associated with cybersecurity and offers them insights into whether the programs they have in place take the appropriate precautions and are adequate. The treatise was authored by cybersecurity expert Samuel Rosenthal, Global Chair of the Government Investigations and White Collar practice group at Squire Patton Boggs LLP. The book is currently available on Bloomberg BNA's flagship legal product, Bloomberg Law, and in print.
With most companies handling sensitive consumer information, cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly important issue for attorneys. They must understand the risks their companies are facing while possessing an understanding of the growing number of statutes, regulations, rules, judicial opinions and commentaries affecting consumer information. This will position them to take the steps necessary to ensure that their organizations have adequate safeguards in place to protect consumer information.
"The unparalleled growth of the Internet is matched only by the unparalleled explosion of issues around cybersecurity," said Rosenthal. "This book is designed to assist lawyers and clients in taking precautions to avoid litigation, or to respond to lawsuits in the most effective way."
The treatise contains in-depth discussions touching on numerous key issues, including:
- liability facing companies, boards of directors and other employees responsible for cybersecurity — and the recent cases applying those principles
- a summary of the statutory schemes and governmental guidance that impact cybersecurity
- special chapters dedicated to industries facing additional challenges, including financial services and health care
- the necessary internal controls that must be in place
