Kim Peretti, co-chair of the firm’s Security Incident Management & Response Team, was interviewed by BankInfoSecurity about what boards must know about security issues and how to keep directors risk-aware.
In the interview, titled “Cybersecurity: What Boards Must Know,” Peretti discusses what directors don’t know about security, the pre- and post-breach responsibilities of boards, and how to educate the board – and when. “[Boards] have an awareness of the threat out there,” Peretti said. “But what they’re struggling with – what they don’t know – is what is the risk that the [threat] has to any particular organization, how do you mitigate that risk, and how do you respond to it?”
Peretti also recently co-authored an article with Jessica Corley, chair of the firm’s Securities Litigation Group
titled “Cybersecurity: What Directors Need to Know in an Era of Increased Scrutiny,” which was published in Bloomberg BNA’s Privacy & Security Law Report on July 28. This was detailed in a previous blog post, which you can read here.
