Join Access Silicon Valley for a live workshop on how to avoid data breaches presented by Procopio attorney Elaine Harwell. SUMMARY From Facebook to Equifax, the last couple of years have seen no shortage of high profile privacy scandals and security mishaps. The damage from a data breach on an established business can be devastating. For startups and emerging growth companies, a data breach can be catastrophic, resulting in the loss of reputation, potential customers or even investors. Data privacy now consistently ranks as a top issue Americans would like businesses to address. Join us to discuss the particular risks startups face when utilizing customer data. We will discuss how to minimize those risks and instead design effective data management processes at the outset to create a competitive advantage for your business.
