Financial institutions are subject to a myriad of cybersecurity and privacy laws. Gramm-Leach-Bliley and its privacy obligations have been around since the 1990s, but more recent changes and developments make it more difficult to be in compliance with the ever evolving area of cybersecurity and privacy.
The best way to truly understand and comply with the ever evolving area of cybersecurity and privacy for financial institutions is to understand the framework upon which privacy laws are based and to understand what everything means and how the financial institution might be impacted by failure to comply. But this webinar will be focused on the present and the future. We will review the history of privacy laws and existing laws, then turn to the evolving rules that have all been passed and promulgated in the last two years – from the New York Department of Financial Services Regulation 500 to the Cloud Act to the new California and Colorado privacy laws to the European Union General Data Protection Regulation. We will discuss how you can implement best practices to reduce your exposure to breaches and minimize liability and provide you with a compliance checklist you can use.
Please join Daniel Cotter as he covers what financial institutions need to understand about the constantly evolving areas of cybersecurity and privacy law as it applies to them, their practices and their customers.
