H4. Business Ramifications of Proposed State and Federal Cybersecurity Legislation
Thursday, May 10, 2018
3:15 PM - 4:15 PM
In the wake of the Equifax breach, state and federal lawmakers have proposed numerous privacy and cybersecurity laws. If enacted, these laws will significantly impact how entities protect, transfer, secure, and dispose of documents containing confidential information and what they must do if they suffer a security breach. We will review these proposed laws and provide attendees with the information they need to understand how the rapidly changing legal requirements may impact their jobs and the business of their employers and clients.
After completing this session the learner will:
- Be aware of the potential changes to Colorado and other states privacy and cybersecurity law
- Understand the potential changes that may impact their employers or clients from federal and state legislative action
- Understand how those changes may impact their jobs or their client's businesses
