InfoSec Law for Dummies (or Engineers)
This article is a reminder that many engineers are woefully clueless when it comes to cyberlaw and some are clearly the wrong person to have in a room with lawyers after an "event".  It also calls to my attention that it seems the rift between the lawyers and security engineers is often vast.  At a minimum companies should keep documentation and provide training along the lines of "InfoSec Law for Dummies (or Engineers)" so everyone is speaking the same language.  Additionally, there should be regular face-to-face moments between an organization's cyberlaw team and the techs who do the work.  In the FLOSS realm, lawyers are often programmers themselves, and the language of law and tech among FLOSS coders is pretty fluid.  We're versed on the law through necessity.  However, in the corporate world, this seems far from common and the divide can be so vast as to be an "event" in and of itself.

Re: InfoSec Law for Dummies (or Engineers)
The Landscape itself was changed with first WannaCry in 2017 and then the Experian catastrophe - the effective Chernobyl of data breach stories.  After these two incidents, data breach and ransomware assumed a whole new face and import.  And corporate reaction took a beating after what Experian and brain-dead CEO stated in testimony.  We are MUCH more aware as a result of the downside beating a firm can take in private and public.
