Eran Kahana, a technology and intellectual property attorney at Maslon, was interviewed on Gurvey's Law, a KABC Radio program, for an extensive conversation on cyber security. During the October 3 program, Eran joined cyber security expert Ira Winkler to tackle various cyber-related topics, including liability issues surrounding hacking and data security
"At the end of the day, even if you have the best of the best security practices, you will not be hack-proof," Eran stated in the interview. However, from a legal standpoint, he asserts, "For the most part, these data breaches don't result in any damages. The plaintiffs are unable to prove that they've had sufficient injury." Eran later advises, "Draft an information security policy that is practical and that you can sustain long-term. Make sure it fits your business, your practices. And pay attention to your vendors and make sure you have tight vendor management."
