Overview (Program Summary)
Cyber-attacks are at an all-time high, as cyber criminals take advantage of disrupted work forces across the globe due to Covid-19. It is not a question of if, it is a question of when. We will address how to plan for and handle the day your company and its data become a cyber target. We will provide best practices before, during and after a data breach investigation to reduce the risk of liability from claims brought by regulators as well as the plaintiffs’ bar. The session will include illustrative case studies involving attacks by nation states and other internal and external threat actors and their methods, including ransom, phishing, and various malware. We will focus on areas of risk (including the increased risk of insider sabotage since Covid), and how best to protect privilege and defend against actions brought by FTC, HHS/OCR, the SEC Cyber division and other regulators in the wake of data breaches. We also will discuss how to prepare for and defends against the inevitable class action litigation brought by the plaintiffs’ bar.
