Your in-house legal team has a continual challenge when it comes to staying on top of the ever-evolving legal risks that the Internet presents to your organization. From safeguarding your organization against false negative reviews and defamation, to staying current with online privacy issues and laws, to keeping up with the different platforms and the various legal tactics required to protect the brand against reputation attacks; it’s an overwhelming task and many in-house counsel, having a long list of other daily duties and responsibilities, just don’t know where to begin or how to plan and prepare for these 24/7 risks.
If this sounds like you or your team, you are far from alone. In fact, a new survey by InsideCounsel Magazine, commissioned by iThreat Cyber Group, revealed that:
“Two out of three legal counsels representing a cross section of Fortune 1,000 companies acknowledge they are not “very well prepared” to prevent a significant, material attack on their product, brand or intellectual property.” – Bulldog Reporter
On Tuesday, September 30, 2014, Melissa Agnes, President of Agnes + Day, is co-hosting a 90 minute webinar dedicated to helping in-house counsel find the answers they need and develop robust strategies to help safeguard their organization from the many internet attacks that put it at risk.
Co-hosted by Whitney C. Gibson, Partner at Vorys Sater Seymour and Pease and head of the firm’s Internet defamation group, and Chris Anderson, Co-Founder and Group Head of the Internet Defamation Division at Cyber Investigation Services, and provided by Strafford Publication, this complimentary trio will discuss:
- The role of in-house attorneys in protecting corporate reputation and guarding against Internet defamation.
- How online social networks, ratings websites and blogs pose a potential threat to a business’ reputation — and how to manage this risk.
- How in-house counsel can and should work with business leaders, communications staff and cyber investigators when responding to online attacks.
- The best strategies available today for stopping and removing damaging material from the Internet.
- How to develop an incident response plan.
