Julie Machal-Fulks, Partner of intellectual property and technology law firm, Scott & Scott, LLP will present “Privacy, Network Security and the Law”, at the SNW Fall 2013 Conference at 11:35 a.m. in Long Beach, CA.
Ms. Machal-Fulks will discuss current privacy laws, the impact of data breaches, and how the use of encryption can assist organizations by reducing the need to notify customers of a data breach in the event of a security incident. Many states that require notification in the event of a breach have an exception for encrypted information. In most cases, very little guidance is provided regarding encryption techniques.
