Practical Law Intellectual Property & Technology

Information security programs protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data and information technology assets. In addition to growing consumer and market demands, multiple federal and state laws and regulations mandate or at least encourage implementing a robust information security program.

Counsel must understand legal obligations, general practice standards, and technology basics to meet client needs in this rapidly evolving area. Because technology and the cybersecurity threat climate change constantly, organizations and their counsel must maintain their vigilance.

Effective information security programs rely on multiple, coordinated program elements. This Toolkit contains resources that provide practical guidance on developing, implementing, and maintaining an information security program, drafting effective policies, preparing for and responding to cyber incidents, and addressing related legal issues, including risk assessments.
