Matheson Partner Speaks at Cyber Workshop
Andreas Carney, partner in Matheson's Technology and Commercial Contracts Group and a member of the firm's Data Protection and Privacy Group, spoke at the recent Dublin International Insurance and Management Association Cyber Workshop. Andreas was one of just six experts speaking at the event, which also included Olivier Burgersdijk, the head of strategy at the European Cybercrime Centre of EUROPOL.
The workshop focused on issues in the cyber risk landscape, the challenges for large companies and how to develop a risk management strategy to protect against cyber risk. It also outlined the Central Bank of Ireland’s expectations in relation to cyber security best practice.
Andreas’ particular focus was on cyber security and data security breaches and he addressed the legal framework applicable to data security breaches, reporting requirements and managing legal risks.
Andreas has considerable experience in the data protection sector and his work includes strategic compliance advice, outsourced data processing arrangements, assisting clients in achieving privacy by design in new products and services, and representing clients on regulatory issues arising with the Irish Data Protection Commissioner. He is a regular speaker and author on the topic, including the most recently published Ireland chapter of the International Comparative Legal Guide to Data Protection 2016.
