Section News:

Please mark your calendar for the next Securities Section meeting on Wednesday October 24, 2018 with the presentation by Rachel V. Rose and Jay Johnson,  entitled "Cybersecurity and the Impact on SEC Filings and Compliance". 

Cybersecurity is not going away.  Despite the provision in the Sarbandes-Oxley Act of 2002, which has required safeguards for over 15 years, the past few years have seen an uptick in enforcement actions, guidance and lawsuits.  The purpose of this presentation is to give participants an overview of the following: (1) government agency enforcement actions and relevant laws; (2) SEC guidance for financial institutions and broker-dealers, as well as wht companies need to disclose in their filings in the event of a breach; and (3) how cybersecurity/privacy plays out in different lawsuit scenarios (e.g., whistleblower versus class action).
