Mayer Brown



In one high-profile data breach after another, businesses have learned a hard lesson: A company’s cybersecurity is only as strong as the weakest link in its supply chain. Suppliers often have access to a company’s systems and data, and cyber attackers know it, so companies need to be just as diligent about their suppliers’ cybersecurity measures as they are about their own.

Please join us as Mayer Brown partner Rebecca Eisner and senior associate Lei Shen discuss how to address this need through the contracting process including how to better build data security into your supplier contracts, and while doing so, how to protect yourself against emerging threats.

In this program, you will learn the following:

•Why cybersecurity and data privacy are top issues today

•How emerging technologies and cybersecurity threats are affecting and changing sourcing

•How to strengthen data protections in your supplier contracts
