ZEK's Garrie and Griver Publish Article in Wall Street Lawyer on proposed Cybersecurity Disclosure Act

ZEK’s Daniel Garrie and Yoav M. Griver published an article in the May 2016 issue of Wall Street Lawyer, titled “Cybersecurity Disclosure Act: A Misguided Attempt to Effectively Address Cyber Threats.”  In that article, ZEK’s Garrie and Griver discuss a proposed law — the Cybersecurity Disclosure Act of 2015 — introduced on December 17, 2015 by Senators Jack Reed (D-R.I.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine).  The authors take issue with the proposed law and its “one size fits all” approach, questioning the proposed law’s ultimate effectiveness and noting its potential anti-competitive effects.
