Tomorrow: Association of Corporate Counsel Networking Event and CPD


In-person - Tuesday, 28 November 2023

Join the Association of Corporate Counsel for a CPD in the Bar Common Room, which will delve into the dynamic landscape of cyber-crime—a pressing concern for businesses of all sizes. Following the session, join members of the ACC in a networking event with refreshments provided. Elevate your understanding of cybersecurity while savouring a tasteful experience at this not-to-be-missed gathering for barristers and corporate counsel.

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.

Join speakers:

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

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.
