A settlement filed on March 2 between Yahoo Inc and shareholders stipulated that Yahoo would be required to pay $80 million to plaintiffs harmed by data breaches occurring in 2013 and 2014. Newmeyer & Dillion Managing Partner Jeff Dennis spoke with reporter Kate Fazzini of WSJ Pro Cybersecurity about the settlement and provided insight on what it means for boards concerned about cyber risk.

Subscribers can read Kate’s article, “Board-level Lessons from the Yahoo Shareholder Settlement,” in the WSJ Pro Cybersecurity March 15 newsletter.
