Cybersecurity and Privacy Subcommittee

Information Security Guidebook for Directors

Marc discussed one possible project that was discussed at the Winter Working Meeting to create a guidebook of sorts for corporate directors that identifies information security risks and gives them tools to help manage those risks.

If you're interested, contact Marc (see contact information below). You can also track developments on the Law Hub page dedicated to this Subcommittee.

Cybersecurity Summitt

Before the meeting, Marc Pearl, Co-Chair of the Subcommittee distributed a a working draft template proposal for the Cyber Security and Privacy Summit that our Cyberspace Committee Task Force has been discussing. Hank Judy, our co-chair, Ray Gustini, and Marc have been working on developing this proposal that would bring together some of the critical sector entities for a one-day invitation-only program to discuss in small facilitated groups new conceptual approaches to the business and policy issues surrounding information-sharing, data collection/distribution, the balancing of security and privacy rights, etc.

They hope to hold the event in early 2005 and therefore need to begin to put the pieces together as soon as possible. A sub-group of the Task Force will meet during the ABA Meeting in Atlanta on Saturday, August 7th in the Atlanta Hilton's Grand Ballroom A - 2nd Floor - immediately following the "Getting Paid in the 21st Century" program - at approximately 4:30pm to begin planning for the Summit.

Please let Marc know if you have comments on the "template-in-progress." In particular, think about procedural issues (such as possible co-hosts, location, timing, etc), as well as the possible sector experts to invite to participate in the Summit.

If you would like a copy of the proposal, contact Marc at mpearl <@> . You can also view information about the Summitt on the Law Hub. Or, you can track him down at the meeting and talk to him here. He looks like this:
