On Wednesday, May 23, from 3 – 4 pm ET, Troutman Sanders attorneys, Alan Wingfield, Wendy Sugg, and Meagan Mihalko presented a webinar discussing employment-purpose background screening laws. The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act imposes technical paperwork requirements on employers desiring to obtain background screenings, and many millions of dollars have been paid in individual and class actions based on alleged failures to comply. State analog laws to the FCRA impose their own procedural requirements. State and local “ban the box” laws regulate when and how an employer can request and use background reports on potential hires. The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Act has been used by regulators to attack employer screening policies that allegedly have a discriminatory effect against protected groups. Some states and localities regulate the type of background information, particularly criminal history, that can be collected and used. Meanwhile, tort law remains ready to impose large damages on an employer who is found, after the fact, to have not conducted an adequate background check on employees. Rather than digging deeply into a single legal aspect of background screening, this webinar is designed to give a holistic overview of the entire legal landscape affecting employment-purpose background screening. Companies and professionals who are charged with developing effective compliance strategies for their background screening activities need to have the entire legal context in mind, and our webinar is designed to survey that context and provide guidance for compliance.

On Wednesday, June 6, from 3 – 4 pm ET, Troutman Sanders attorneys, Ronald Raether and Jonathan Yee will present a webinar discussing vendor risk.

Business interconnectivity is nothing new. With the rise of the cloud, vendor management came into focus. Companies continue to engage outside vendors and third-party services providers to assist with key aspects of their operations including payment platforms, customer relations management, information technology, and data storage, to name a few. With the cloud, many companies believed that their data would be safer. However, those involved in security for years (decades) knew better. So, now after some hard lessons, many businesses still fail to account for the use of these third-parties and their access to sensitive company and consumer information in their respective cybersecurity programs. Join us for an informative look at emerging laws and guidelines which provide best practices that companies should consider to minimize cyber risk from vendors and third-party service providers and to work towards a stronger position to assert compliance with cybersecurity regulations.

Covered Topics

  • Overview of cyber risks associated with vendors and third-party service providers
  • Steps to develop a vendor cybersecurity compliance program
  • How regulations should inform on policies including a look at the NYDFS Cybersecurity Regulation and DFAR
  • Industry best practices
