Covington Tackles Vendor Cybersecurity Risks in New Book for Corporate Directors and Officers

October 13, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC, October 13, 2015 - Covington addresses the critical issue of how to manage risks associated with third-party outsourcing in Navigating the Digital Age: The Definitive Cybersecurity Guide for Directors and Officers. Published in collaboration with Palo Alto Networks and the New York Stock Exchange, the book provides boards, executives and officers, government agencies, and other organizations with practical, expert advice on how to best protect their businesses from cyberattacks.

Businesses increasingly work with third parties in ways that can render otherwise well-guarded data and systems vulnerable to attack. Co-authored by David Fagan, Kurt WimmerNigel Howard and Libbie Canter, “Managing risk associated with third-party outsourcing” explores the cybersecurity risks posed by third-party outsourcing and discusses how to manage these relationships to mitigate risk.

“Now more than ever, companies need to have a comprehensive cybersecurity program in place, which includes managing third-party relationships through diligence, contractual terms, and continued monitoring and oversight, “ said David Fagan, who leads the firm’s cyber and data security incident response practice.

Covington’s cybersecurity practice combines deep expertise developed at the highest levels of government with more than a decade of practical experience advising companies on cybersecurity risks. We counsel clients on how to manage legal risk before a cybersecurity incident takes place, as well as help manage the full range of legal issues that can arise when a breach occurs.
