 "Privacy and Data Security" 

 Presented By

 David F. Katz
Partner, Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP


Adam Lantrip
Assistant Vice President, McGriff, Seibels & Williams, Inc. 


This presentation will be a conversation to provide participants with a high level overview of current best practices in the area of privacy and security controls, practical advice on organizational and institutional steps required to initiate the development of an internal privacy and security compliance program including incident response. The presentation will include a comprehensive power-point presentation on these topics drawing on practical first hand experiences counseling clients on these matters and as in house counsel tasked to develop such programs for a public company in Atlanta.

The session would provide an informative overview of the Generally Accepted Privacy Principles and the Internal Standard for Organizations 27001 and 27002 standards which address security controls within the organization and are among best practices for management of privacy and data security programs. 

Finally, the session will attempt to assess and evaluate the current state of internal governance related to privacy and data security.  We will offer suggestions regarding best practices and provide practical advice for creating privacy and data security "compliance infrastructure" within the organization consistent with recent advice by the SEC and in light of privacy and security compliance failures in other organizations.
