On Wednesday, November 30, 2022, Avi Gesser, Co-Chair of the Debevoise Data Strategy and Security Group,  participated in the WSJ Pro Cybersecurity Forum on a panel on Cybersecurity Whistleblowers, along with Kim Nash, Deputy Editor of WSJ Pro Cybersecurity, and Todd Fitzgerald, Vice President of Cybersecurity Strategy at the Cybersecurity Collaborative.  The panel discussed:

  • Why employees blow the whistle poor cybersecurity practices;
  • How companies should prepare for a rise in internal data scrutiny; and
  • What steps to take (and not to take) when confronted with a cyber whistleblower.

A video of the panel is available here.
