82 | A Look at the Consequences of the Uber and Twitter CISO Cases
This week we are joined by Ron Raether, co-lead of the Privacy + Cyber team at Troutman Pepper, and explore aspects of the recent criminal conviction of Uber’s former CISO and fallout from Twitter’s former CISO turning whistleblower. The “culture of fear” that has developed in CISO offices nationwide has dramatically increased risk for companies that have such a culture. Ron Raether discusses how organizations can better support their CISOs and how the general counsel and outside counsel can help influence change in organizations for better governance and cyber risk management. We also explore how CISOs can gain more C-suite visibility and board access.
Ron has assisted companies in navigating federal and state privacy laws for more than 20 years and he has successfully defended companies in more than 200 class actions. Balancing privacy, cyber security, and business functionality, Ron’s approach to data governance is uniquely designed with the industry in mind as it adapts to the ever-evolving technological and legal landscape.
