the-bank-accountOn the latest episode of The Bank Account, Jonathan and I were joined by our Chicago partner, Jena Valdetero, to discuss snow, cybersecurity and data breaches.  While Jena would normally be the one dealing with winter weather, it was Jonathan and myself watching the snow fall in Atlanta while Jena enjoyed a relatively warm, sunny day in Chicago.

Jena is part of Bryan Cave’s Data Privacy and Security Team, and joined us to discuss some of the current threats in cybersecurity and some of the steps that banks (and bank customers) should be

A Crash Course on Data Breach and Cyber Security

The recent disclosure by the Georgia Secretary of State of voter’s Social Security Numbers has caused a number of our clients – particularly those based in Georgia – to request additional information concerning how to prevent and respond to data security incidents.

To that end we have gathered together our recorded materials on effective breach prevention and response into a suggested week long training program with one suggested hour of programming every day the week following Thanksgiving. Celesq, the company that maintains the recordings of our programs, has agreed to waive the fee for any of our clients that wish to access them during the week.

Georgia Secretary of State’s Office Has An “Oops Moment” Over Personal Identifying Information

November 19, 2015

by: Jerry Blanchard and David Zetoony

The Georgia Secretary of State posted a letter on its website on November 18, 2015 admitting that, on October 13, the office inadvertently released personal identifying information on registered voters in Georgia. While the letter does not actually spell out what information was released, a lawsuit filed in Fulton County Superior Court this week alleges that the information on the 6,184,281 Georgia voters includes:

  • voters full name
  • residential address or mailing address if that is different
  • race
  • gender
  • voter registration date
  • last date the person voted
  • their social security number
  • driver’s license number
  • date of birth.

The information had been provided on CDs to 12 groups, including political parties and journalists, in a release that normally would only include basic information, such as names, addresses, registration and the last time the person voted. Under normal circumstances, the Secretary of State makes such information available for $500 to interested

FDIC Examinations and Cyberattack Risk

May 7, 2015

by: Jerry Blanchard and David Zetoony

FDIC bank examinations generally include a focus on the information technology (“IT”) systems of banks with a particular focus on information security. The federal banking agencies issued implementing Interagency Guidelines Establishing Information Security Standards (Interagency Guidelines) in 2001. In 2005, the FDIC developed the Information Technology—Risk Management Program (IT-RMP), based largely on the Interagency Guidelines, as a risk-based approach for conducting IT examinations at FDIC-supervised banks. The FDIC also uses work programs developed by the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) to conduct IT examinations of third party service providers (“TSPs”).

The FDIC Office of the Inspector General recently issued a report evaluating the FDIC’s capabilities regarding its approach to evaluating bank risk to cyberattacks. The FDIC’s supervisory approach to cyberattack risks involves conducting IT examinations at FDIC-supervised banks and their TSPs; staffing IT examinations with sufficient, technically qualified staff; sharing information about incidents and cyber risks with regulators and

March 6, 2012

by: Bryan Cave

Bryan Cave has advised numerous clients concerning what to do when their data is accessed by an unauthorized party, lost, or accidentally disclosed. In recent years, the need for victims of data breaches to take immediate action has grown as how our clients respond within the first twenty-four hours following a breach has a dramatic effect on our ability to defend them in resulting investigations and litigation.

Because of the need for immediate action, the Bryan Cave’s Data Privacy & Security Team has launched a Data Breach Hotline that leverages our depth of knowledge and geographic platform to provide clients with access to an on-call member of the Team 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  A brief description of the service, which is open to all of our clients, can be found below.
