Worried about SEC impacts in 2024? Join Our AMA.

Ivan Dwyer 


After the SolarWinds security incident and subsequent proceedings drew a great deal of public interest, more emphasis has been placed on the legal consequences of security breaches. And at the end of the year, new rules were brought into effect by the SEC that govern the disclosure of security incidents that could have a material impact on investor confidence.

We've spoken to many colleagues in the Security space, and what's conspicuously alike is the uncertainty concerning both corporate responsibilities and personal liabilities. Being experienced industry professionals, we're used to tackling business and technical doubts, but in many ways, this is uncharted territory. So much of the Security function is risk management, knowing all too well that there is no silver bullet and no guarantees – how far is the SEC going to reach with its precedence here?

As we wrote in a blog post last November, What Constitutes Material Impact? The SEC Needs You To Know, the open question is — who decides what's "material", and are security incidents securities fraud? Expanding on that, there’s been a lot of chatter around:

- How transparent should we be to meet guidelines without giving attackers clues?

- Why am I personally on the hook for security incidents when we’re doing everything we can?

- Who should be communicating externally – Security, Legal, Communications?

- When should we report incidents when issues are constantly being handled?

- What can we do to minimize the consequences in the case of a breach event?

We believe the best way to support you in this situation is to help answer some of the pressing questions that many of you may have. We aren't acting purely as a technology vendor here, but rather as a steward of the community. As many of the most difficult questions have to do with Legal and Insurance, not solely related to technology and personnel, we've put together a panel of industry experts for a confidential “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) session.

Join us live on Jan 25th at 10 AM PT | 1 PM ET for a live readout with our expert panel.
