The Rt. Hon. Lord Reid of Cardowan

John Reid was a Member of Parliament in the UK from 1987 to 2010, and served in the Cabinet under Prime Minister Tony Blair in a number of positions, including Health Secretary from 2003 to 2005, Defence Secretary from 2005 to 2006, and Home Secretary from 2006 to 2007.

Short biographies for our other speakers can be found below.

Topics covered will include:

  • Current trends in data theft
  • The role of the board and Senior Management; an insider’s view
  • Using all tools: how in-house legal can help pre/post breach

Data theft and loss is endemic in modern business. Much media attention focusses on external threats such as hackers, but the more pervasive threat is posed by internal actors, whether through accidental data breaches or theft of information. The Cyber Security Series is a joint initiative from the Chertoff Group and Covington & Burling LLP to assist companies with preventative and reactive measures to manage the threat of information loss.
