Directors’ Duties in a Cyber World

Date - 19 June 2019
Venue - Bartier Perry

Bartier Perry in partnership with Tecala would like to invite you to our upcoming seminar.

Against the backdrop of ever evolving technology, the constant threat of security breaches means that cyber security is an issue that businesses can no longer afford to ignore.  This raises the prospect of personal liability for company directors who fail to effectively manage the risks presented by the digital age.

Our expert panel will take you through all aspects of:

  • The obligation to implement effective cyber security systems

  • Data and privacy protection

  • Increasing employee awareness of cyber security issues

  • The interplay between directors’ duties and management of cyber risk

  • Tips on effectively managing the cyber risks posed by the digital age

Leading the session as Chair will be Gavin Stuart, Partner and Head of Bartier Perry’s Commercial Disputes team.

Attendees can take the opportunity to submit questions or topics they would like covered during the session.  Post your question when you RSVP.
