NY Virtual Table Talk
Cyber Security - Best Practices, Insurance & Ransomware

Ransomware attacks are one of the most intractable — and common — threats facing organizations across all industries, professions and geographies. The sophistication of ransomware attacks continues to evolve rapidly. Unfortunately, the outlook for 2022 is not much better. In particular, threat actors are adjusting their attack model to adapt to improvements that organizations are making to recover from these attacks.  Of these, most concerning is a blended extortion-ransomware attack: threat actors steal sensitive company information before encrypting it and then threaten to leak the exfiltrated personal or medical data on the Dark Web if a victim decides not to pay a ransom. This tactic places many victims in a catch-22 payment situation. Moreover, criminal hackers are now recruiting disgruntled employees to deploy ransomware by unleashing malware from inside the organization. Enterprise security and management must constantly re-assess cyber risk and adjust incident response and business continuity plans. We will address the threat landscape, incident response options, mitigation strategies and developing issues in the cyber-liability insurance market. 

Karen Painter Randall will address the constantly changing threat landscape including ransomware and factors to consider in paying or not paying a ransom, best practices for attorneys and the hardening of the cyber liability insurance market.- all a must for attorneys in practice today.
