Information Security and Vendor Engagements: Safeguarding Data and Mitigating Risks

Events / Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2016
Noon - 1:30 p.m. EST (Webinar starts at 12:30 p.m. EST)

Atlanta, GA 30309

Headline-making data security breaches have revealed time and again that vendors, including technology service providers, expose companies to significant risks. Virtually any service provider has the potential to threaten the security of your organization’s confidential information, intellectual property and customer personal data. Further, your vendor engagements may result in the creation of data assets that are valuable to both parties; it is crucial to establish how the rights to such data will be allocated and the purposes for which that data may be used.

Companies across all industry sectors must understand and guard against the vulnerabilities associated with vendor engagements. Proactive diligence includes carefully considering how vendors access, modify, store or otherwise process your company’s data, as well as negotiating contract terms that clearly articulate each party’s rights and obligations when it comes to information security and data ownership.

Join lawyers from BakerHostetler’s Privacy and Data Protection team and Intellectual Property and Healthcare practices to learn more about:

  • The privacy implications of vendor data collection and use, including special considerations applicable to protected health information, payment card information, and other types of regulated and sensitive data
  • Data ownership and use restrictions, including how data may be used for analytics purposes
  • Trade secrets protection in the service provider context
  • Data security breach preparation and incident response protocols
  • Indemnification provisions and limitations on liability in service provider agreements
  • How cybersecurity insurance coverage can help mitigate potential risks
