Apr 30, 2015

Join Edgeworth experts Matthew Milner and Michael Kheyfets and ZwillGen attorney Jeff Landis for a complimentary Webinar on Tuesday, May 5, 2015, from 12:30-1:35pm ET.

Organizations of all sizes and across industries increasingly face persistent and evolving threats against the security of their confidential and sensitive data. As breaches of proprietary data systems have become more commonplace, so have lawsuits accusing the breached parties of failing to protect their customers. In many cases, the public announcement of a breach has been followed almost immediately by the filing of a suit. 

In this Edgeworth Economics FORUM Webinar, Matthew Milner and Michael Kheyfets of Edgeworth Economics and Jeff Landis of data security and privacy law firm ZwillGen PLLC will present a mock case to examine the elements and potential theories of harm in data breach litigation. As a part of the mock case, they will consider legal and economic approaches to evaluating several damages theories which frequently arise in these matters.
