Companies are facing more attacks on their information systems. And, as their cyber risk skyrockets, the SEC has stepped in with new regulations, telling businesses what to disclose about these incidents — and requiring detailed disclosures on cyber risk management more broadly. With the deadline for compliance fast approaching, businesses are scrambling to mitigate their legal risk and comply with regulations that some say may be an overreach.
Join The Sidley Podcast host and Sidley partner, Sam Gandhi, as he speaks with two of the firm’s thought leaders on these issues — Sonia Barros and Colleen Brown. Sonia is a partner in Sidley’s Capital Markets group and co-leader of the firm’s Public Companies practice. Colleen is a partner in the firm’s practices in Privacy and Cybersecurity, Commercial Litigation and Disputes, Crisis Management and Strategic Response, and Insurance. Together, they discuss the SEC’s newly adopted regulations for disclosing information on cyber risk and how companies and their boards can best comply.
