Event Description

The Pell Center has joined the national Data Privacy Day (DPD) campaign, an international effort held annually to raise awareness about the importance of privacy and data protection. As part of this effort, Linn Freedman will host a special seminar on "How to Create a Culture of Privacy & Security within your Organization."

Ransomware is now up 6,000% and 70% of businesses admit that they pay the ransom to obtain their data. IT departments are struggling to keep intruders out and to put reasonable measures in place to protect the company data and the privacy of their clients' information with limited budgets. HR and finance personnel are ad hoc privacy officers and the demands are becoming a full-time job. The topic is overwhelming and discouraging.

This session will focus on practical tips and a roadmap on how to address the increasing risk of data management, how to build data privacy and security into the company culture, and how to engage employees to be part of the process. Ms. Freedman, a leading lawyer in cybersecurity, will bring her industry leadership and experience counseling global corporations to discuss how to protect an organization's brand, value, and assets in the face of growing data breaches and ransomware attacks. She will also provide practical questions for senior executives to ask the IT and HR departments and their vendors about policies and processes in place to protect company data and clients' information.
