Wolters Kluwer Opens Registration for Webinar on Cybersecurity and the Practice of Law


June 07, 2017

Complimentary session offers valuable insight and expertise for legal professionals

NEW YORK, June 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- With cybersecurity risk concerns growing every day, Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced that registration is open for its complimentary webinar on cybersecurity to be held on June 14, 2017. During the session, Wolters Kluwer's leading experts on security, banking and financial services will provide legal professionals with critical insight into recent and potential shifts in cybersecurity regulation.

The webinar is a timely and convenient way for professionals to gain guidance on the complex and fast-changing legal and regulatory environment of cybersecurity and electronic privacy. The session will be led by Wolters Kluwer's leading securities and banking law experts J. Preston Carter, J.D., LL.M., John M. Pachkowski, J.D., and Mark S. Nelson, J.D. "As cybersecurity concerns continue to grow – especially after the WannaCry breach last month – federal and state regulators have bolstered efforts to develop new standards for cybersecurity," said banking law analyst John Pachkowski, J.D. "The webinar will help legal professionals to expand their understanding of the latest developments in the regulatory environments that govern these issues."

Topics covered in the webinar include:

  • An in-depth analysis of New York State's recently enacted and first-in-the-nation requirement that banks, insurance companies, and other regulated financial institutions establish and maintain a program to protect consumers and the industry;
  • Discussion of how the federal banking agencies' issuance of an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking could result in certain financial institutions being required to establish enhanced cyber risk management standards;
  • Broad coverage of final rules newly adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

The webinar comes on the heels of Wolters Kluwer's launch of the Cybersecurity & Privacy Law Suite. Available on Cheetah™, Wolters Kluwer's market-leading legal research platform, the Suite provides access to a vast range of content and tools to streamline navigation of the complex legal and regulatory environment of cybersecurity and electronic privacy.
