April 2018 Chapter Meeting

Posted by Anonymous Thursday, April 5, 2018

On April 26, 2018 the ISSA-KC Chapter members, and other security professionals will hold a meeting at Hereford House in Leawood, KS, to network and attend the monthly chapter meeting, with presentation topic.

Speaker:  Tedrick Housh leads the Cybersecurity & Data Privacy Practice at Lathrop Gage, where he assists companies with legal issues related to data collection, storage, protection, use, transfer and disclosure.  He helps clients manage security incidents, and resolve the ensuing disputes and liabilities.  He works with clients to implement, assess and improve Information Security Policies, Incident Response Plans and other aspects of privacy and security programs.  Mr. Housh helps clients navigate issues concerning data subject consent, data vendor and transfer agreements, and terms of use and privacy statements for websites and apps.  He has been active in the firm’s work involving Block chain and other emerging tech platforms, and worked on ICO projects and token sales.  With more than two decades of experience in workplace law, he also counsels on employment-related matters and litigates covenants not to compete and trade secret misappropriation.

Topic:  “Hot Topics in Information Security Law, from GDPR to Data Breach Class Actions”

Abstract:   Information Security professionals lead the battle to address vulnerabilities and avoid data loss or disclosure, but no system is perfect.  Companies have to plan for what might go wrong, and the legal landscape, like security technology itself, changes quickly.  Tedrick Housh of Lathrop Gage will provide an update on the latest developments in the law of information security and data privacy, and answer your questions.
