NEW YORK, Nov. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Practising Law Institute (PLI) announces the release of their newest title, Cybersecurity: A Practical Guide to the Law of Cyber Risk, the first major legal treatise on this crucial area of the law.

The task of managing cyber risks, once the near-exclusive realm of IT professionals, is now also borne by attorneys, senior executives, and directors. This new guide provides the practical steps that can be taken to understand and mitigate today's cyber risks and build the most resilient response capabilities possible.

Edited by Edward R. McNicholas and Vivek K. Mohan (Sidley Austin LLP), Cybersecurity provides a comprehensive discussion of the complex quilt of federal and state statutes, Executive Orders, regulations, contractual norms, as well as the ambiguous tort duties that can apply.

The book includes practice tools developed during the hundreds of breaches that the authors have weathered with their clients. These valuable practice aids include checklists, an overview of the legal consequences of a breach, and a tabletop exercise.   

The one-volume Cybersecurity: A Practical Guide to the Law of Cyber Risk is priced at $395 and is available for a 30-day free examination.
