Cyber-crime is a rapidly growing and evolving issue for businesses large and small. Cyber criminals are becoming increasingly daring and their methods are increasingly sophisticated.  From small scale "phishing" to handling major data breaches, commercial organisations and their lawyers need to keep up with developments in this rapidly changing area in order to manage the risk that it presents. That risk includes the potential for legal liability to those whose private information they hold such as customers, as well as to shareholders and others who can be affected by an attack on their organisation.

This session will examine the potential liability that commercial organisations may be exposed to in the aftermath of an attack as well as potential responses to a major data breach.

It will also examine the expectations of regulators, Courts and insurers as to ways in which cyber risk might be managed

Please join the following speakers:

  • Chair - Kate Richardson
  • Speaker - Stephen Free SC
  • Speaker - Matt O'Kane
  • Speaker - David Gallagher

The session is jointly hosted with the Australian Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel and will be followed by drinks and finger food.
