Law and Technology Society, NLSIU | Webinar on ‘Coverage issues related to data breaches’

About the Webinar

In this digital and globalised world, unauthorized disclosure of personal and other confidential information has become a well-known and ever-increasing risk for holders of third-party information and business data. The costs associated with a data breach or unauthorized disclosure of confidential information can be substantial. As the risk associated with data and privacy breaches continue to grow and evolve, companies and individuals have turned, in varying degrees, to their insurers for protection.

The Law and Technology Society, NLSIU brings to you a webinar on ‘Coverage issues related to data breaches’. This webinar is a part of an integrated series which the society plans to conduct in due course of time. The webinar will be held on October 13th, 2020 at  6:30PM to 7:30 PM  IST.
