Cybercrime: The New National Security Threat

Event Detail
Kimberly Kiefer Peretti, Kellen Dwyer
June 30, 2021
12:00 PM - 12:45 PM Eastern Standard Time

Recent unprecedented supply chain attacks on various third-party providers of widely-used software products, as well as ransomware attacks on critical infrastructure companies, have led the Biden administration, including the Department of Justice, to take steps to treat cybercrime as today’s new national security threat.

Join us for this 45-minute fireside chat as Kim Peretti interviews Alston & Bird partner, Kellen Dwyer, former deputy assistant attorney general in the DOJ’s National Security Division, to discuss:

  • The impact to companies of designating cybercrime as a national security threat
  • Expectations the government has for private sector organizations to protect against the threat
  • How the government may contribute to efforts to mitigate or respond to incidents
  • How your organization can protect against sophisticated cyber-attacks
  • Pertinent cyber and national security laws, including navigating foreign surveillance laws in the context of Schrems II and the new Standard Contractual Clauses
