Information security and data privacy have become issues of great concern and importance. So has the cybersecurity whistleblower. Some may be surprised then to learn that there is no federal law that specifically protects employees who blow the whistle on cybersecurity or data privacy concerns.

That does not mean cybersecurity whistleblowers are without protection, but practitioners who would help them must be aware of a large and expanding patchwork of provisions that can provide remedy. This course, presented by Dallas Hammer, Principal at Zuckerman Law, will provide an overview of whistleblower protections for employees who blow the whistle on cybersecurity or data privacy concerns. The course will also offer practical tips and insights for practitioners on how to evaluate potential cybersecurity whistleblower claims and overlapping remedies to maximize damages. In addition, the course will address the challenging issues that arise when a whistleblower simultaneously prosecutes both whistleblower retaliation and whistleblower rewards claims.
