Cyber Risk Readiness Webinar: How In-House Counsel Can Help Companies Prepare

Event Detail

Cyber Risk Webinar

An in-house lawyer’s role in cybersecurity starts long before (and goes far beyond) responding to an actual data compromise. From projects as far-reaching as enterprise-wide cyber risk assessments to those as targeted as designing an updated employee training on new cyber threats such as ransomware, in-house counsel can have a significant role in cyber risk readiness, regardless of the business area they support. Indeed, in-house counsel should be working in conjunction with their information security teams and other personnel to develop key aspects of a cybersecurity program, including data inventories, compliance strategies and incident response plan testing through tabletop exercises and breach simulations. As cyber threats have ushered in harmful exposure to significant financial loss and reputational damage, it is increasingly important for organizations to elevate their cyber risk readiness posture, and in-house counsel can help drive this process.

We are pleased to host a discussion with a panel of in-house counsel, private sector and former government experts in cyber risk, security, incident response and technology to discuss the many areas where in-house counsel can play an integral role in assessing, and preparing for, cyber threats.
