The issues are as current as recent headlines:

  • Was your voting machine hacked??? Presidential candidate Jill Stein has asked for a recount in Pennsylvania.
  • On October 21, 2016, consumers were unable to reach Netflix, Twitter, CNN and several other well-known websites. This was because Dyn, a provider of core Internet services for these sites, was in the midst of a global Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attack via a botnet composed of malware-infected IoT devices such as DVRs, home monitors, and webcams.
  • How private are your personal details when your Fitbit or Apple Watch broadcasts your heart rate and GPS location?
  • Is our safety and privacy being sacrificed during the rapid spread of Internet-connected gizmos such as TV sets, security cameras, thermostats, refrigerators and even front door locks?

Join us to explore these issues, and to learn about efforts to address them by Congress, government agencies, and private standards-development companies such as UL.

Thank You to TPNG for hosting Gerry Elman and Joshua Waterston’s presentation “Cybersecurity Technical and Legal Challenges (You Can’t Just Check the Box)”

On September 22, 2016, Elman Technology Law attorneys Gerry Elman and Joshua Waterston gave a presentation on “Cybersecurity Technical and Legal Challenges (You Can't Just Check the Box)” to the Philadelphia chapter of the Technology Professionals Networking Group (TPNG).  Attendees included Information Technology professionals of varied interests and backgrounds – entrepreneurs, directors, consultants, analysts and more.  The presentation focused on the importance of organizations having a proactive and holistic approach to cybersecurity, rather than on a reactive and top-down approach.  A cost-effective method is to request a Cybersecurity Legal Audit, which Elman Technology Law offers as a service to clients.  Gerry, Josh and the attendees shared their individual experiences and discussed potential problems and solutions to thorny legal and logistical cybersecurity problems.  The presentation was well-received and Gerry and Josh are grateful to TPNG’s fine leadership for the opportunity.
