PREVENTING AND RESPONDING TO A CYBERSECURITY EVENT FROM THE LEGAL AND TECHNICAL PERSPECTIVES: NIST CYBERSECURITY FRAMEWORK (MARCH 27, 2014, SPEAKERS – TODD TAYLOR, KARIN MCGINNIS, SERGE JORGENSEN): With our guest speaker Serge Jorgensen of the Sylint Group, we looked at cybersecurity protections and responses from the perspective of an IT/cybersecurity expert and from the legal perspective. We discussed the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) proposed Cybersecurity Framework, ordered by the President to assist organizations in reducing the cybersecurity risk to the United States’ critical infrastructure. What exactly is the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and what impact will it have on businesses in the U.S.? How can organizations use the Framework to minimize the risk of, and liability for, a cybersecurity breach? Attendees came away with best practices to prepare for and respond to a cybersecurity event within the confines of the law.
