Designed as an “issue spotting” simulation exercise, the participants will assume corporate leadership roles designed to put them in their client’s shoes during the simulation. Through a series of escalating scenarios, the participants will gain insights that should help them advise their clients more effectively when faced with a cyber-breach, a privacy incident or litigation.

Who Should Attend?

Those seeking to better understand the crisis management process in the context of a data breach. Teams are welcome and, depending upon size, will be kept together during the simulation – each team member should individually register. Participants who also attend CAIL's September 9-10 Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Law Conference will have an opportunity to put what they learned to use in a corporate crisis scenario.

Registration is limited. Early registration is encouraged!
