How Cyber Stakeholders Can Speak the Same Language (Part One of Two)

In the areas of cybersecurity and data privacy, a company’s attorneys and technical teams must work together closely. The two groups often have different approaches, however, and may not speak the same language when it comes to handling security breaches and protocols. Commonly used terms can be used inconsistently, and their implications misunderstood. In this first article of a two-part series, attorneys and consultants with different perspectives share advice with the Cybersecurity Law Report on the importance of clear communication between key stakeholders. They also examine the different approaches to cybersecurity and detail six strategies for overcoming communication challenges. Part two of the series will explore frequently misunderstood cybersecurity terms and their meanings.
