Cybersecurity risks are ubiquitous. No organization is exempt from this threat. While companies take measures to seek to prevent a cyber attack, cybersecurity incidents are generally considered inevitable. There is no question, however, that preparation can mitigate risk. This session will provide an update on the latest cybersecurity threats and exploits. The speakers will explain the current cybersecurity legal environment in the U.S. and will describe how to manage a cyber incident. They will also describe proactive measures some organizations take to limit the harm a cyber attack could cause and better protect their systems and data.
