Safeguarding Protected Personal Information and Personally Identifiable Information (PPI/PII) and the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability (CIA) of Data

Date: December 6, 2023 12:00pm
Speaker: Dean DiPilato
Location: C&S Companies

About the Presentation

Join us for a presentation on what you need to know about safeguarding Protected Personal Information and Personally Identifiable Information (PPI/PII) and the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability (CIA) of Data. Everyone in an organization plays a vital role in ensuring CIA and that PPI/PII is properly protected from unauthorized disclosure. Dean will touch on some instances of how this has arisen for him in litigation, as well as best practices in e-discovery to avoid negative outcomes from the gathering and production of PII/CIA.
