PHILLIPS LYTLE PARTNER ANNA MERCADO CLARK TO PRESENT AT 2019 NAPABA NORTHEAST REGIONAL / AABANY FALL CONFERENCE

New York, N.Y. – Phillips Lytle Partner Anna Mercado Clark will present at the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) Northeast Regional / Asian American Bar Association of New York (AABANY) Fall Conference. The conference will take place September 21 at Fordham University School of Law. Ms. Clark will present on the topic, “Cybersecurity: 20/20 Hindsight Not Good Enough in 2020.”

The conference gathers experts in the field to discuss matters relevant to the cybersecurity industry to assist attorneys in staying ahead of these technological developments, such as:

  • Pre-breach planning, including updating your incident response plan, identifying your incident response team, training your team and conducting tabletop exercises, designing network infrastructure with redundancies;
  • Potential issues that you have to address after a data breach (notice requirements, PR management, government inquiry, litigation, preservation of evidence), including ethical concerns;
  • Liaising with law enforcement and other federal and state agencies, and understanding the roles and responsibilities of the FBI, DHS and other agencies;
  • M&A opportunities and diligence issues with respect to privacy and security practices of a bankrupt company.

As leader of Phillips Lytle’s Data Security & Privacy and e-Discovery & Digital Forensics Practice Teams, Ms. Clark focuses on complex e-discovery and digital forensics, cybersecurity and data privacy, and complex commercial litigation. As a former Assistant District Attorney, she also handles white collar criminal matters and investigations.
