The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Foundation has released The State of Cybersecurity Report (2018), underwritten by Ballard Spahr. The report, subtitled “An In-House Perspective,” provides insights on corporate cybersecurity issues from more than 600 general counsel, chief legal officers, and other senior law department leaders at organizations worldwide.
The new report, which updates and builds on the 2015 edition that was also underwritten by Ballard Spahr, reflects the fact that companies experienced more breaches than ever in 2017—up 45% from 2016—as in-house counsel continue to increase the amount of attention—and money—spent on protecting sensitive online data. It includes a self-assessment tool companies can use to assist their efforts.
