In-House Counsel on the Front Lines: Preparing for and Mitigating a Cyberattack
Cybersecurity has been among the top concerns for executives and in-house counsel for several years. In light of recent geopolitical issues as well as ongoing cyber and fraud threats, businesses are operating under a heightened security landscape. Cyber-criminals are attacking the computer networks and systems of individuals, businesses, and governments to access sensitive private data, including personal information, intellectual property, and trade secrets. The U.S. remains the biggest target with more than half of all cyberattacks committed against small to mid-sized businesses who lack the financial resources and skills to combat the constantly evolving cyber threat. As a business owner, risk officer, in-house counsel or anyone responsible for cybersecurity for an organization, do you understand your role when a cyberattack occurs?
Hear from Patrick Tracey, Partner, Bowditch & Dewey, Professor Kevin R. Powers, Founder and Director, MS in Cybersecurity Policy & Governance Program, Boston College, and a panel discussion with Rob Sherman – Chief Information Security Officer at American Tower, Henry Grossman, Esq. – Principal at HG Law and Rob Fitzgerald - Principal at Arcas Risk Management. The topics to be covered are:
- The role of in-house counsel regarding cybersecurity
- How to appropriately manage an attack
- Obligations of your business
- Addressing regulatory issues and potential litigation
