Pennsylvania Supreme Court data breach case Dittman v. UPMC
April 25, 2019
Devin Chwastyk and Carol Steinour Young are slated to present on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court data breach case Dittman v. UPMC at the Association of Corporate Counsel event “In-House Counsel ‘Defending the Corporate House’” in Harrisburg on April 25, 2019.
Devin and Carol will lead a discussion on the Dittman v. UPMC case, which held that employers owe their employees a duty to exercise reasonable care when collecting and storing personal and financial information, and called into question the viability of the economic loss doctrine, which bars tort claims involving only pecuniary loss. The goal of the discussion is to provide practical guidance on how to protect information, respond to data breaches and avoid liability.
