Cyber Risks: A False Sense of Security EPISODE 1

JONES DAY TALKS®: Cyber Risks: A False Sense of Security – Episode 1

Cybersecurity risk is evolving and expanding. Traditionally, cybersecurity risk has been equated with cyber attacks and associated legal consequences.

But companies increasingly face cybersecurity legal risk even absent a data breach. Emerging theories of liability – largely arising from inconsistencies between representations companies make about their cybersecurity and their actual cybersecurity posture – are presenting new, substantial civil and potentially criminal legal exposures for companies.
