James Pray, an attorney at BrownWinick, will present at the 14th Annual Iowa IT Symposium on Thursday, November 5, 2015. Jim's presentation is entitled "First Come the Hackers, Now Come the Lawyers: Legal Implications of Security Breaches."

Following a data breach and after hackers have been shown the door, the lawyers will come knocking.  Whether they are working for law enforcement, class action plaintiffs, business customers, insurance companies, or your own company's legal department, you may be entering unfamiliar territory. In this session Jim Pray, both a practicing attorney and law firm CTO, will tell you what lawyers look for, their motivations, documentation requirements, insurance issues, the potential scope of criminal and civil investigations, publicity issues, vendor relationships, and customer notice requirements.
