On April 5, Rob Munnelly and Pat Clendenen, shareholders at Davis Malm, presented the program, “Protecting Data & Dealing with Breaches Globally in 2017,” as a seminar for Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education (MCLE).

The program provided a comprehensive overview of data security developments affecting Massachusetts businesses and institutions in 2017, including global issues, recent litigation precedents affecting exposure to class action lawsuits for significant breaches, and emerging insurance coverage issues. The panel also provided a timely update on recent enforcement trends and the evolving roles of the Consumer Protection Division of the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office as reviewers of business practices and protectors of consumer rights relative to sensitive data.

MCLE aims to keep raising the caliber of lawyers’ professional and ethical service to their clients and communities, by providing comprehensive and practical continuing legal education of the highest quality to the broadest possible audience. The “Protecting Data” program focused on key legal and operational measures that should be instituted to ensure local and multi-location businesses maintain an effective information security program.
