Sharon R. Klein Quoted in Legaltech News Article, 'A Bevy of Cybersecurity Pitfalls Marred Equifax's Handling of Insider Threat'

Sharon R. Klein (CIPP/US), a partner with Pepper Hamilton, chair of the Privacy, Security and Data Protection practice and a leader of the Technology practice, was quoted in the September 18, 2018 Legaltech News article, "A Bevy of Cybersecurity Pitfalls Marred Equifax’s Handling of Insider Threat."

Another reason could be that the systems used for monitoring aren't accurate. "Sometimes the monitoring systems overreports [its findings] and therefore the personnel that are responsible for it sort of ignore the alert alarms," said Sharon Klein, partner and chair of the privacy, security and data protection practice at Pepper Hamilton. "So it's hard to decipher which of those incidents are really important and could cause a security incident."
