Arbitrating B2B Data Breach Disputes

Wednesday, October 3, 2018, Noon to 2:00pm
Squire Patton Boggs (US) LLP
30 Rockefeller Plaza, 23rd Floor
New York, New York

Organized by the USCIB Arbitration Transactional and Corporate Counsel Subcommittees

Every news cycle seems to bring to light another data breach. Target. SONY. Anthem. Fitbit. The list is long and varied. Compounded by mandatory breach reporting required by GDPR and U.S. legislation, privacy and security litigation in consumer cases is increasing. While not as publicized, business-to-business disputes arising from security incidents between companies are also on the rise. This program will discuss the coming wave of data privacy and security commercial disputes between businesses, the legal claims and defenses asserted in these cases (especially internationally), and the key role of ADR in resolving these disputes.

Divided into two panels, this two-hour program will discuss both the business problem of B2B data breaches and the ADR solution to resolving these inevitable disputes.
Panel I: The Business Problem – Corporate Counsel Perspective


• Nancy Thevenin, General Counsel, USCIB


• Nancy Saltzman, former EVP, General Counsel and Company Secretary, EXL Service
• Edward Chang, 2VP, Cyber Risk Management, Travelers

Panel II: The ADR Solution – Practitioner’s Perspective


• Fred Fucci, Independent Arbitrator, Fucci Law & ADR, PLLC; Chair, USCIB Arbitration Transactional Lawyers Subcommittee


• Joseph V. DeMarco, Founder and Principal, DeVore & DeMarco LLP
• Gary L. Benton, FCIArb, FCCA, Independent Arbitrator, Gary Benton Arbitration; founder of the Silicon Valley Arbitration & Mediation Center
