Cybersecurity is what you make of it—and Wednesday’s Women, Influence & Power in Law Virtual Summit left a lot of options on the table. During a session titled “Proactive Measures to Avoid Potential Data Breaches & Cyber-Attacks,” guests dove into topics ranging from building effective partnerships in-house to negotiating vendor contracts, all of which are subjects that could stand some attention prior to a data breach.

Still, the first item that a GC or in-house legal attorney may have to consider isn’t all that technical or even steeped that much in the law. Instead, GCs may want to carefully consider how they talk about cybersecurity to the C-suite or other departments within their organization.
