December 4: Cybersecurity and Arbitration: Arbitrating B2B Data Breaches and Protecting the Arbitral Process
Data breaches are now a fact of life. Almost everyone is familiar with breaches that occur when someone gains unauthorized access to consumer data held by a business – the “business-to-consumer” or “B2C” breach. Far less publicized are the “business-to-business (“B2B”) breaches. These breaches often occur quietly and don’t often appear on the front page of the newspaper but are not less important and can have disastrous effects on business. This program will discuss how to arbitrate B2B data breaches. In addition, there will also be a focus on cybersecurity protocols and initiatives by arbitral institutions.
If you are an AAA Panelist please note this program does not satisfy your annual Arbitrator Continuing Education requirement.
