Ransomware: Mitigation, Communication and Enforcement


Ransomware attacks have seen an alarming increase in the last two years with the intentional targeting of key industrial and manufacturing businesses. Victims of ransomware attacks must make time-sensitive decisions about 

  • how to quickly restore business operations, 
  • how to disclose the attack and to whom,
  • managing communication from the board to third party vendors and customers; 
  • how to interact with law enforcement and other government agencies, particularly in light of sometimes conflicting guidance from the government;

Join us for session one of the Ransomware Series on Thursday, June 3rd as panelists---including a former general counsel, a former federal cybercrime prosecutor, and a cybersecurity expert---address best practices and key considerations for resuming normal business operations as quickly as possible, communicating with insider and outsiders, and interacting with different U.S. enforcement agencies in the event of a ransomware incident.
