From the malicious to the unintentional, cyber incidents continue to increase in frequency, severity, and costs to victimized companies. Organizations often find themselves in the disparate, yet contemporaneous, roles of cybercrime victim, target of regulators, civil litigant and media punching bag.
Organizations must navigate these competing roles with an eye on legal, financial, operational and reputational impact, while continuing to address what may be an ongoing and worsening cyber incident or while bracing for the next cyber incident. Governmental components can be an ally or an adversary in this dynamic process.
This panel will explore the legal risks created by cyber threats and offer practical insight on how to manage interactions with federal and state governmental components in the wake of the most common types of cyber incidents. Audience members will leave with ideas about to enlist the aid of law enforcement agencies while minimizing regulatory and civil liability in the wake of cyber incidents.
