What does the modern general counsel worry about? Modern problems, of course, like data security and the impact of social media. According to theConsero 2014 General Counsel Data Survey, nearly half of all general counsel feel that their company is not ready for a cyber security breach, while other legal departments are wrestling with writing a social media policy that adequately mitigates legal risk. While technology issues topped the list of general counsel’s concerns in 2014, budgetary issues, other strapped resources, and complex regulatory changes also weigh heavy on the GC’s mind. Corporate Counsel Connect spoke with Paul Mandell, CEO of Consero, on some of the findings of their survey.
