Program Materials

This CLE webinar will provide business counsel with effective tactics for drafting and enforcing data privacy and security agreements in the wake of growing incidents of data security breaches. The speaker will address effective contractual provisions for defining, allocating and mitigating risk.


An explosion in the amount of data businesses collect, new and evolving uses for data, and threats to the privacy and security of data have increased the urgency for businesses to negotiate ironclad and enforceable data privacy and security contracts with their vendors.

The recent Equifax data security breach is the latest reminder that data security breaches are here to stay, putting trade secrets and confidential information at risk and exposing businesses to liability.

Through carefully drafted data privacy and security agreements, counsel can help businesses define, allocate and mitigate the risks resulting from data security breaches. Insurance, indemnity and limitation of liability provisions are among the key contractual clauses for managing risk.

Listen as attorney Steven C. Bennett explains best practices for drafting data privacy and security agreements. Mr. Bennett will discuss new and evolving risks to data privacy and security and specific clauses that should be included in data privacy and security contracts to define, allocate and mitigate risk, and withstand enforcement challenges.



  1. Lessons for businesses from recent data security breaches
  2. Key clauses in privacy and security agreements
  3. Enforcing privacy and security agreements


Mr. Bennett will review these and other key issues:

  • Best practices to mitigate risk when drafting data privacy and security agreements
  • Contract terms most frequently included in data privacy and security agreements
  • Overcoming enforcement challenges with data privacy and security agreements
