CIArb is delighted to present its new podcast. Natalia Otlinger MCIArb (PR & Engagement Executive) interviewed Claire Morel de Westgaver of Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner on the subject of cybersecurity in international arbitration.
Claire is a dual-qualified arbitration practitioner admitted to practice law in England & Wales and the U.S. (New York). She has acted as counsel in proceedings conducted under the rules of the LCIA, ICC, AAA/ICDR, SCC, UNCITRAL and CCJA. She has particular experience of disputes relating to technology, corporate transactions, licenses, cross-border sale or service agreements, as well as disputes with a civil law element.
In addition to her work as counsel, Claire sits as an arbitrator. She has experience as co-arbitrator, sole arbitrator and chair in arbitrations conducted under the LCIA Rules and the CEPANI Rules.
In the podcast, Claire discussed the most common cybersecurity threats and why international arbitration is an attractive target for hackers. She also shared statistics which confirm that the importance of cybersecurity is widely recognised in the arbitration community and gave a few examples of arbitrations which were the subject of a data breach.
Claire also explained the risks associated with security breaches and shared her views on who should take on the responsibility to tackle the issue of cybersecurity. She also gave her insights about practical measures which can be introduced to minimalize the risk of an attack.
