LOS ANGELES, Jan. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Data breach and privacy litigation is a hot-button and ever-evolving issue for corporations right now, but changes in technology, public policy and law have triggered several other concerns for companies and their insurers, said Tom Hagy of HB Litigation Conferences. Hagy added that he is producing two continuing education events in California to address these subjects.
The Data Breach & Privacy Litigation Conference will take place Feb. 11, 2016, in San Francisco, Hagy said.
