Preserving the Privilege during Breach Response 

When companies hire cybersecurity consultants to investigate incidents, those professionals’ reports and emails could be used against the company in court unless a privilege applies. This session provides an overview of the attorney-client privilege for post-breach investigations, and tips for increasing the chances that the privilege will apply and the data will remain confidential.
