The Evolving Cybersecurity Standard of Care

Cyber Attorney Joseph Burton on Regulators' Influence on Emerging Standard of Care

Over the past year, fines levied by various regulatory agencies against breached entities have helped to shape and clarify what cybersecurity attorney Joseph Burton calls the cybersecurity standard of care - a standard for reasonable security that courts will turn to when determining liability and fault in the wake of a breach.

In this video interview recorded at ISMG's San Francisco Fraud and Breach Prevention Summit, Burton discusses:

  • How the cybersecurity standard of care outlined in 2002 by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act is now being used by regulators and courts;
  • How the cybersecurity standard of care and reasonable security are linked; and
  • Why we're getting closer to attaining a recognized and understood cybersecurity standard of behavior.
