On August 26, ZEK’s Daniel Garrie and Yoav M. Griver published an article in Bloomberg BNA titled, “Do CIOs and CISOs Get Covered in Cybersecurity Litigation.”  In it, the authors discuss the increasing risk that Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) will be personally sued in the event of a data breach or other cybersecurity incident, and suggest three ways in which such risk can be managed.  The article is part of a continuing series of articles discussing the increasing impact of the digital age.
