Converge or Collide? Time for Legal and Compliance Staff to Tune into Cyber Risk Management

As data breaches dominate newsrooms and board rooms pressure on attorneys and compliance staff to develop information security management programs has reached unprecedented levels. Yet, traditional siloed infrastructures can inhibit collaboration between information security and legal, which is critical to solving challenges for both departments. For example, IT may not fully comprehend the scope or ramifications of a breach based on the data compromised , whereas legal, which is involved in nearly all business matters throughout the enterprise, would instantly make such connections. Thus, a primary objective should be to foster a unified response between IT and legal when an incident occurs, before it occurs. In a converged incident response model, legal considerations are addressed equally alongside investigation and remediation activities. The goal of any response process is to effectively mitigate breach cost and impact. Learn how convergence enables this and alleviates some burden CISOs shoulder in achieving that goal.
