How strong are your organization’s cybersecurity protocols? The advent of hybrid work environments in the post-pandemic world has highlighted issues of cybersecurity risk and privacy protections for all businesses operating in the United States. Client, customer, and consumer data privacy and security have become the focus of recent Federal Trade Commission regulatory actions against large and small companies for failures to adequately protect data and respond when data is compromised. The World Economic Forum has reported that 95 percent of cybersecurity breaches are caused by human error. In addition, automated and augmented intelligence technologies are increasingly used in U.S. workplaces, including for recruitment, career planning and promotional opportunities. Can the algorithmic patterns in these technologies result in bias that violates state and federal nondiscrimination statutes? In this law seminar, our experts provide an overview of the privacy and cyber landscape in the U.S. today and its impact on corporate and human resource business practices in industry and healthcare.
