Member Quarterly Events
Member Quarterly Events will be regularly scheduled and, whenever possible, will be open to all Cyber Law Consortium members on a no-cost basis. Members will be encouraged to invite other cybersecurity and data privacy guests in order to acquaint them with the substantive topics presented by the organization as well as to engage in peer-to-peer networking across inter-professional categories including with members of their and other company’s enterprise-wide cybersecurity and data privacy management teams.
The quarterly topics, for the most part, will feature highly-respected legal and technical IT experts in cybersecurity and data privacy matters as well as other emerging technologies which are having or are predicted to have a significant impact on the means and methods of defending a company’s digital assets. Some presenters will focus on the regulatory requirements faced by in-house legal and IT employee experts as well as needed improvements to certain laws or regulations that govern or regulate the activities and responsibilities of cybersecurity and data privacy personnel.
Wherever possible, panels consisting of C-Level officials will be utilized to illustrate recent and real life experiences that help the attendees appreciate the perils or promise of a particular legal or technical practice or device.
SIG Quarterly Events
SIG Quarterly Events will be strongly promoted during the interregnum in view of the large variety of legal, technical and management skills and expertise that our members represent. The Cyber Law Consortium welcomes all who wish to participate or co-chair any member special interest groups by contacting our CEO, Roland Castaneda.
View our poll with the list of special interest groups currently under consideration and vote on the ones you want us to create.
Governance-Level Quarterly Events
Governance-Level Quarterly Events will be an important feature of the Cyber Law Consortium. The corporate governance quarterly meetings will focus on all governance-level issues, including financial, ethical, civil and criminal liability or fiduciary responsibilities that relate to their duties, functions, responsibilities and the potential liabilities of the Board of Directors, C-Level executives, and General Counsel.
The Quarterly meetings of the Governance Level program will be held on a “By-Invitation-Only” basis and will be aimed at General Counsel, C-Level Executives and members of the Board of Directors. These Quarterly Meetings will be co-hosted by The Texas Lawbook, the Cyber Law Consortium, and the Cyber Future Foundation.
Brown Bag Lecture Series
The Brown Bag Lecture Series will consist of six to eight presentations especially designed to appeal to the 10,000+ small to mid-sized businesses in North Texas who wish to learn the basic concepts of cybersecurity and data privacy in a cogent and simplified manner and who typically lack resources to pay for in-house legal counsel and IT staff or outside IT consultants. The Dallas Business Journal will advertise the full year’s offerings in full page ads. It is expected that companies will opt to send those staff persons most closely associated with the subject matter being addressed. Examples of topics are Cyber Insurance, GDPR Requirements, Ransomware & Malware, Officer & Director Liability Issues, etc. We expect this program to begin in early 2019.
Annual Award for Excellence in Cyber Governance
Beginning in 2020, this will become an annual event at which corporations in several business categories will receive the prestigious “excellence in cyber governance” awards as conferred by a panel of cybersecurity experts in the respective field of commerce. The awards will be granted to the company’s Board member and his/her corporate cybersecurity management team. Eventually, the awards ceremony will be held in each of the three CLC chapter cities. The awards will bear the name of several pioneers in the fields of technology and cybersecurity.
