Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 04, 2013

Join us for a discussion of potential legal pitfalls that companies may face when they take affirmative steps outside their own networks to prevent or mitigate cyber attacks.

Depending on circumstances, defensive countermeasures could be construed as civil and/or criminal violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), and the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), and consequently they could pose significant legal risks that in-house counsel and their advisors should evaluate before authorizing conduct that could run afoul of either statute.

This 90-minute webinar will also address recent developments in the cyber security arena, including recent legislative initiatives, the President’s Executive Order and relevant provisions of the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act, which would impose new reporting requirements and promote more effective information sharing on cyber threats between industry and the Government.

This 90 minute webinar entitled “Cyber Security: Recent Developments and a Case for Self Defense” is scheduled for Wednesday, January 23, at 1 PM Eastern. To register, follow this link:
