Looking Forward

The past two years have seen a series of mega-breaches that exposed the highly-sensitive personal data of hundreds of millions of Americans. Already, the EU, New York, California, and several other jurisdictions have implemented strict new data protection and data privacy laws. We expect 2019 will continue this trend and, further, that regulators will start to take a more aggressive posture in dealing with companies that fail to take sufficient steps to protect their systems and data. In particular, the SEC has signaled that its regulatory priorities will be cybersecurity risk disclosures, timely disclosure of cybersecurity incidents, insider trading controls, effectiveness of data security policies, and internal accounting controls. Accordingly, companies need to take concrete action to avoid becoming the next victim — or the government’s next “example.”
