Cleary Privacy Roundtable Breakfast: Managing Privacy and Cybersecurity Risks in Customer-Vendor Relationships

September 12, 2019


New York, New York

Cleary Gottlieb hosted a breakfast seminar, “Managing Privacy and Cybersecurity Risks in Customer-Vendor Relationships,” part of its Privacy Roundtable Breakfast Series.

The discussion focused on the following:

  • What’s “market”— how should privacy and cybersecurity-related liability be allocated between customer and vendor?
  • How do evolving privacy and cybersecurity laws, including GDPR and CCPA, affect customer-vendor negotiations and contracting?
  • What are some common traps in vendor contracts that increase legal risk?
  • If a customer believes a breach is the fault of a vendor, how should the customer’s incident response change?
  • What can we learn from recent cases involving allegations by customers against vendors?
  • Is insurance the ultimate solution for both customers and vendors?
