In a daylong Privacy Summit at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, the co-chairs of Fox Rothschild’s Privacy & Data Security practice group led a series of panel discussions with leading cybersecurity professionals and government officials.
Fox partner Elizabeth Litten, who serves as Fox Rothschild’s HIPAA Privacy & Security Officer, and partner Mark McCreary, the firm’s Chief Privacy Officer, moderated a two-part panel series examining cyber risk management for protecting company data. The first segment, “Looking Inward: Risk Management Part I,” focused on the best internal company practices, policies and training to combat cyber threats and protect valuable data. “Beyond Company Walls: Risk Management Part II” examined the ways businesses should approach vendor management and cyber insurance to further secure and safeguard their data assets.
Litigation partner Scott Vernick moderated the panel “Current State of Affairs in Regulation & Enforcement.” Discussion highlighted the domestic and international data privacy and security obligations relevant to U.S. businesses.
The summit closed with a thought-provoking keynote address from Eric O’Neill, a former FBI counterintelligence operative who helped apprehend Robert Phillip Hanssen – one of the most notorious spies in U.S. history – who provided memorable insights about corporate diligence and defense.
