The role of the general counsel in a cyber security program is more critical than ever before, and we only expect it to grow in importance as we move into 2020. General counsel need to be there advising on legal issues, coordinating communications, establishing and preserving privilege, and advising a board of directors whose fiduciary duties have evolved to include cyber security.
Despite it's growing relevance, the general counsel's role in cyber security is still emerging, so there isn't a significant amount of guidance out there on how to successfully perform the job. To learn more about it, we turned to our own general counsel, Alexa King.
Watch the video to hear what is top of mind for Alexa as we move into 2020, and then for more reserve your complimentary copy of The Road Ahead: Cyber Security in 2020 and Beyond. In the report, Alexa touches on various aspects of the general counsel role, including privacy and privilege, working with the board of directors, and holding tabletop exercises to be ready for the inevitable breach.
The report also features insights from several other FireEye senior leaders, covering important aspects of cyber security such as strategy, intelligence, technology and legal. The report will be available on November 12, but we have additional forward looking content lined up for release prior to and after that date, so be sure to keep an eye out for more!
