For many companies, cybersecurity can be a touchy subject, so it may not be surprising to learn that some companies prefer to discuss their brushes with breaches under the Chatham House Rule. So was the case at Hogan Lovells’ inaugural Cyber Summit, where on March 15, general counsel, board leaders from various companies, and government leaders convened to merge ideas to better address cyber risks and forge new paths forward.

“We convened the summit because our clients and the companies we work with expressed their desire for a forum in which they could have discussions amongst themselves at a senior level in the organization and with others in government,” explained Harriet Pearson, partner at Hogan Lovells’ global privacy, information management and data security group. “Fundamentally, what we see happening here as a law firm with our clients at the general counsel level and at all levels of the legal function … is that the risks posed by cybersecurity and the attention that has to be paid at the C-suite level are putting demands on general counsel, more and more to become more aware of the technical concepts of cybersecurity.”
