In a data breach world of “when, not if,” organizations must be prepared to respond. Ten different channels of response activity must be synchronized for a response to be successful. Deciding how to handle these interwoven activities in the midst of an unfolding, high-stakes breach requires advance planning. This seminar will address the 10 activity channels anticipated in a breach scenario and how companies can manage these activities simultaneously to avoid unnecessary risk, delay and cost.


Jeff Jensen counsels clients in preparing for and effectively responding to a data breach. Having authored several articles and spoken on the topic of intrusions numerous times, he advises organizations on the ten key questions to ask IT, compliance and internal audit staff to determine their level of preparedness. Jeff’s prior experience as an FBI agent and then as a federal prosecutor have afforded him extensive experience investigating and responding to data breaches. In addition to his cybersecurity practice, Jeff concentrates in the area of complex federal litigation, including internal compliance investigations and reviews and emergency response to government investigations. He is a member of the firm’s Government Compliance, Investigations & Litigation group. Prior to entering private practice, Jeff was as a certified public accountant for PricewaterhouseCoopers. He then served as an FBI special agent in St. Louis for 10 years and as a federal prosecutor for another decade when he led prosecutions of notorious securities and computer fraud cases. In 2006, Jeff was named Executive U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri, an office with 60 criminal and civil attorneys.
