9 September 2016

Debevoise & Plimpton LLP today announced the release of Breach Reading 2.0, the second edition of its mid-year review of legal developments in the cybersecurity and data privacy fields. Featuring original content from the Debevoise Cybersecurity & Data Privacy practice, the publication is available in electronic form or hard copy – perfect for toting to the beach.

“Legal scrutiny of corporate conduct around cybersecurity and data privacy is as high as it has ever been, and companies are compelled to keep up with threat vectors that are dynamic and ever-evolving,” said Bruce E. Yannett, Deputy Presiding Partner of the firm and Chair of the White Collar & Regulatory Defense Group. “Our aim is to deliver the news, the legal analysis, and even some practical pointers – all in an easy-to-understand way that makes keeping abreast of these cyber developments seem not so overwhelming.”

Breach Reading 2.0 includes thoughtful contributions from Debevoise’s Jeremy Feigelson, David A. O’Neil, Luke Dembosky, Jim Pastore, Sarah Coyne, David Sarratt and Jane Shvets, with each offering unique perspectives that span a variety of market sectors.

“Navigating the rapidly changing legal landscape around cybersecurity and data privacy matters is an enormous challenge. Our hope is that Breach Reading 2.0 serves as a helpful resource for professionals tasked with charting their organization’s course through this daunting maze,” added Mr. Feigelson, a litigation partner and leader of Debevoise’s Cybersecurity & Data Privacy practice.

“We were delighted by the reception of our inaugural Breach Reading, which sought to capture the latest developments in the law in an easy-to-read volume,” explained Mr. Pastore, a litigation partner and a member of the firm’s Cybersecurity & Data Privacy practice. “We’ve kept that focus on readability, updating the book with the key cybersecurity and data privacy developments that lawyers and businesspeople need to be aware of, so that they can quickly spot issues before they turn into problems.”
