What Equity Receivers Need To Know About Cybersecurity and Privacy

April 2, 2019

The privacy and cybersecurity pitfalls and opportunities confronting operating enterprises are no less of a concern for fiduciaries, such as court-appointed federal equity receivers. Receivers who are sensitive to these issues at the onset of their tenures will be well positioned to not only avoid or mitigate privacy and cybersecurity mishaps, but to also take advantage of the potential to monetize their estates’ electronic information.  

In an article appearing in the April 2019 issue of The Receiver, the official publication of the National Association of Federal Equity Receivers (NAFER) that can be found here, Otterbourg attorney Erik Weinick of Otterbourg’s privacy and cybersecurity practice examines the legal, business, and technological considerations of which equity receivers and other fiduciaries should be mindful when electronic information comes into their possession, custody and control at the time of their appointments.
