Today, cyber threats are ubiquitous across businesses and borders. The increasing integration and subsequent dependence on digital devices in private and professional life amplify the vulnerabilities that malicious actors can exploit through cyber-attacks and data breaches. While these issues begin in the realm of technology, they can rapidly spread to affect data privacy, intellectual property, financial loss, and reputational damage, and increasingly extend into legal and regulatory repercussions. Knowledge of the current cybersecurity landscape, organizations’ biggest vulnerabilities, and an overview of the existing and developing regulatory landscape, will enable legal professionals to better understand their role in preventing and responding to cyber threats. This process, in turn, will enhance attorneys’ ability to communicate their risk management priorities to other departments in their organization, allowing for a more cohesive response to this developing risk landscape.
In this online seminar, our expert panelists begin by introducing the state of cybersecurity today, highlighting some of the biggest threat actors and vulnerabilities organizations face. Next, our speakers give an overview of the types of cyber threats, differentiating between their methods, motivations, and potential impacts. Our experts then discuss the current regulatory landscape, through the lens of both federal and state agencies, concluding by sharing guidance and top tips for attorneys’ response to cyber threats.
