Cyber attacks have wreaked havoc on organizations in nearly every industry sector. From Sony to JPMorgan Chase to Target, cyber criminals have made it clear that no entity is immune. In today’s interconnected world, cybercrime targets are found in every industry sector. Media reports of the staggering number of increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks attest to this trend, and the events of 2014 have dwarfed earlier hacking incidents.

In the U.S., critical infrastructure companies have developed programs to comply with the Cybersecurity Framework issued in 2014, which is aimed at helping organizations prepare to tackle cyber threats. There has been significant activity by the U.S. government to take measures designed to prevent or mitigate cybersecurity events. The European Union also has taken action to respond to the serious threat posed by cyber criminals.

To keep up with the rapidly evolving legal landscape in this field, companies need to be informed not only about the risks they face, but also about policy pronouncements and legislation that could affect how they do business. A thorough understanding of this area is particularly important for companies that have not previously been in cyberattackers’ crosshairs and need to consider strategies to confront these sophisticated and persistent threats.

The multiple challenges posed by cybersecurity issues demand an interdisciplinary approach. Please join us for a robust discussion of the future of cybersecurity with leading experts in the field including law enforcement authorities, Chief Information Security Officers, cybersecurity lawyers, forensic experts and scholars.
