Webinar "Cybersecurity Incident Response: Preparing for and Navigating a Data Breach"
Cyber and National Security Programs Webinar Series 2020-2021
Each day there is a headline grabbing news piece involving another cyber-attack on an organization resulting in the theft of digital information (e.g., sensitive personal or healthcare information, intellectual property, trade secrets, confidential business, financial, and legal information) or the disruption of government and business functions. Nation-states, terrorists, hacktivists, and cyber-criminals are relentless. Companies are told "it's not a matter of if, but when" they will be attacked.
Compounding that, federal and state regulators are stepping in with new requirements, mandating companies in all sectors address data protection and privacy with little, if any, real guidance on how to do so. Despite being a victim of a cyber-attack, a business most likely will still have to defend its actions in claims from government agencies and litigation involving class action and shareholder derivative suits.
What to do? In our webinar, we will discuss how to develop an effective incident response plan, based on “lessons learned” and industry best practices, and how to successfully respond to, mitigate, and recover from a data breach.
