Cybersecurity 2019: Managing Cybersecurity Incidents


Why You Should Attend

Cyber attacks have wreaked havoc on organizations in every industry sector.  Senior management and boards of directors alike rank this issue to be of the highest concern – and for good reason.  From the consumer reporting agencies to technology companies to financial services organizations, cyber criminals have made it clear that no entity is immune.  In today’s interconnected world, cybercrime targets go beyond those that maintain personal information; many entities have been targets due to the business proprietary information they hold.  Media reports of the staggering number of increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks attest to an upward trend in cybercrime, and the events of the last few years have dwarfed earlier hacking incidents.

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 significant action to respond to the serious threat posed by cyber criminals. China has also been active in this arena.

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 cyber attackers’ 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, regulators, Chief Information Security Officers, cybersecurity lawyers and forensic experts.
