Lawyers and cybersecurity experts should focus on putting the greatest resources towards protecting an organization’s most valuable information. Yet, cybersecurity today  is generally not usually prioritized to protect a company’s “crown jewels,” that is the secrets, processes and other data that represent the most important corporate assets.  This session provides a practical approach to “what works best to protect what matters most” in cybersecurity. It also offers an international perspective on the topic with thoughts about how the EU creates default rules and incentives and disincentives for the protection of knowledge assets.  How can a company most efficiently manage exposure before an incident and then detect and respond should an incident occur?  What are the trends in this area in the EU?
