SANS Webcast - "Legal Liability for Information Security"

Monday, 21 April 2003, 4:23 PM EST

SANS brings another complimentary webcast on Wednesday, April 23rd at 1pm EST (1800 UTC) entitled Legal Liability for Information Security: Ask the Experts.

For years, security professionals have claimed that "one day people will be held liable for weak security." That day may have arrived, with class action lawsuits, and HIPAA, and California's new disclosure law and more.

On Wednesday, April 23, three of the nation's top experts on civil liability for cyber crime will be online to provide a brief overview of important cases and trends and to answer your questions:

- Marc J. Zwillinger, Chair of the Information Security & Anti-Piracy Practice Group at Sonnenschein Nath and Rosenthal
- Gregory P. Schaffer, Director of Cybercrime Prevention & Response for PricewaterhouseCoopers
- Orin Kerr, Professor of Law at George Washington University

The experts will first provide an overview of new developments that are reshaping the legal landscape in the area of cyber liability. Then you can ask questions on the topics they discussed or any others that you feel are related. In addition, Hal Pomeranz of the Center for Internet Security will give you an update on the newest Gold Standards for safe configuration agreed to by the US government and industrial leaders, and the legal experts will discuss their potential applicability in limiting liability. As well as Charles Woods, Independent Information Security Consultant & Researcher, InfoSecurity Infrastructure, Inc. will be discussing Clarifying Responsibility For Information Security.
