The Director of the FBI, Robert S. Mueller, III, has stated, “There are only two types of companies: those that have been hacked and those that will be. Even those are converging into one category: companies that have been hacked and will be hacked again.”
Data breaches are the subject of headlines almost daily. The costs of the Target data breach alone will reach hundreds of millions of dollars. Companies and their outside counsel are struggling to keep up with an ever-changing landscape of regulations and laws related to data security.
