Sharon R. Klein Quoted in Legaltech News Article, 'Equifax's Liabilities Pile on After Discovery of New Compromised Data'

Sharon R. Klein (CIPP/US), a partner with Pepper Hamilton, chair of the firm's Privacy, Security and Data Protection practice and a leader of the Technology practice, was quoted in the March 8, 2018 Legaltech News article, "Equifax’s Liabilities Pile on After Discovery of New Compromised Data." In the article, Ms. Klein discusses the September 2017 data breach at credit reporting agency Equifax Inc.

“I think that the delay [in discovering consumer data was stolen] is going to be factored into the overarching analysis of, did they do enough to protect the extensive consumer data that was entrusted to them, and once there was a discovery, did they do enough to uncover everything?” said Sharon Klein, partner and chair of the privacy, security and data protection practice at Pepper Hamilton.

[After Equifax hired cybersecurity firm Mandiant to conduct the investigation into its breach,] Klein called Mandiant “very credible in terms of their third-party cybersecurity forensics,” and noted that it was “a good thing” that Equifax brought them onboard.
