As breaches of proprietary data systems have become more commonplace, so have lawsuits accusing the breached parties of failing to protect their customers. In many cases, the public announcement of a breach has been followed almost immediately by the filing of a suit.

In this webinar, Jeff Landis, Matthew Milner, and Michael Kheyfets will present a mock case to examine the elements and potential theories of harm in data breach litigation. As a part of the mock case, they will consider legal and economic approaches to evaluating several damages theories which frequently arise in these matters.
