COSTA MESA, Calif., March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


International data breach response plans will be essential in 2014 as European Union regulations continue to take shape and will be enforced based on where the customer lives rather than where the data is located. With the rise of the cloud, data is now moving seamlessly across borders, making the potential for complex, international breaches more possible.

Michael Bruemmer, vice president for Experian Data Breach Resolution, and Jim Harvey, partner, Alston & Bird LLP, will present on this topic, "Cross-border data breach response: the next frontier," at the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) Global Privacy Summit. The presentation will feature a discussion around the rise of the cloud and what happens when the growth of online data opens the door to vulnerabilities that cross borders and laws, forcing risk managers to be compliant with myriad regulations. In addition, the presentation will outline the operational elements around a data breach response.
