Writing a global pandemic playbook - A three-part series

With the rapidly changing Coronavirus (COVID-19) landscape, global companies are at the front lines and need to be prepared to deal with the legal, business and practical repercussions. In this three-part series, we will address top-of-mind issues for in-house legal departments and will answer live questions based on your business needs.

Hackers and scammers thrive amidst uncertainty, putting a premium on extra vigilance as well as on revisiting incident response plans. In addition, in times of crisis and extreme uncertainty—whether due to a cyber event, a pandemic, or both—the role of the lawyer as leader becomes even more important. In this webcast, we will discuss the following:

•    Effectively advising senior leaders and leading teams in times of extreme uncertainty and crises
•    Practical risk mitigation measures and response strategies when prevention fails
•    Phishing/scams that should concern employees and customers, especially during enhanced remote working
