Cybersecurity Legal Task Force – Ransomware Webinar

“Ransomware: A Massive and Paralyzing Cyber Threat Facing Organizations in 2019”

Webinar Recording from February 20, 2019

Law firms, In-House counsel and small to medium size businesses are guardians of confidential and valuable information making them an ever-growing target of the ransomware cyber-attack. It is no longer whether an organization will be attacked but when and to what extent. With 4000 ransomware attacks occurring daily and 400,000 new ransomware strains developing at the same pace, ransomware is the biggest cybersecurity threat that must be met head on by law firms and businesses in 2019. Ransomware locks up critical information and files that an organization needs to operate. The clock is ticking. Should the organization pay or not pay? There is a tremendous amount of strategy involved in making the right decision-it is not simply a binary choice for the organization.

Legal, security, law enforcement and insurance experts will address best practices for preventing and responding to a ransomware attack including:

  • Ethical obligations that apply in safeguarding client data and breach notification
  • How to avoid a ransomware attack
  • Options available to respond to a ransomware attack
  • When should you and how do you pay ransom
  • Pitfalls even when ransom paid
  • Insurance coverage and loss concerns
