Webinar aims to help companies know what to do before and after a data breach


By Karen Kidd | Apr 23, 2019


A company needs to know what to do before and after a data breach and addressing those steps is part of the on-demand Financial Poise Webinar "Data Breach Response: Before and After the Breach."

"Your company may have already implemented its information security program and has identified the responsible parties, including applicable outside experts, to be contacted in the event of a breach," Financial Poise says in the webinar's introduction. "However, now you must assemble your incident response team to investigate the extent of the breach, evaluate the possible damage to your company, and determine whether you must notify your clients or the public of the breach. This webinar gives you an overview of what to do when the worst happens."

The webinar's principal audience is attorneys and advisers, business owners and executives, and investors.

To register, interested attendees can sign up here. There is a $175 cost associated with the course.

This webinar is in partnership with ChamberWise, Financial Poise and West LegalEdcenter.
