Engbloom Quoted in Corporate Counsel Article About Cybersecurity in Today’s Market

Bookmark and Share

Julie Engbloom was quoted in a June 13 Corporate Counsel article titled “3 Realities of Modern Cybersecurity.” The article discusses three trends that create the foundation of how modern companies and law firms are addressing cybersecurity in the current market. It is based on information provided at Legalweek West’s “Regulatory Update and Strategies to Manage Cyber Risk” session, of which Engbloom was a part.

The move towards breach notification is not the only cybersecurity regulatory trend happening within the country. Engbloom pointed to the effect New York state’s Department of Financial Service’s cybersecurity regulation, which has unprecedented scope, can have on the future of other state laws.

“[New York’s] regulation has certainly raised the bar and likely will become a model for other states,” she said, adding that the regulation “elevates the notion of security from IT right into the board room, and certainly boards have been put on notice.”
