Why Attend:


What should corporate executives, and general counsels in particular, do when their company is the victim of a cyber attack? If a client hasn’t called upon you to help them respond to a cyber incident yet, it will likely happen soon. Do you know what vulnerabilities are most critical to protect? Are you prepared to take action for a client asking for help in response to a cyber attack? Don't miss this unique opportunity to get insider tips of "lessons learned" from the trenches of the most sophisticated cyber attacks in modern history. Our panel of experts will take you through a simulated cyber attack and different possible scenarios, and provide considerations and tips for legal counsels. The panel will also discuss best practices for incident response, including issues that often arise when working with law enforcement and the set of guidelines that should be followed regarding cybersecurity risks and incidents. Panelist will address disclosure obligations under current securities laws—some of which may require a disclosure of cybersecurity risks and incidents in financial statements—and the pre- and post-breach guidance that will shape the way Boards of Directors address fiduciary obligations as part of corporate governance.


Attendees will leave with the road map on how to advise their clients facing a cyber attack—how to respond, remediate, and survive.


This program has been approved for 4.0 Rhode Island MCLE credit hours.  


What You Will Learn:

  • How to better prepare for a breach before it happens;
  • The different phases of an attack;
  • Successful strategies for incident response, remediation, and post-breach measure;
  • Why, when, and how to contact law enforcement;
  • How to be compliant with the newly updated Rhode Island Data Breach Notification Law;
  • Pre- and post- breach guidelines issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Division of Corporation Finance to assist registrants in assessing what disclosures should be made in the face of cybersecurity risks and incidents; and
  • Ways in which clients, their attorneys, forensics firms, communications teams, and law enforcement can work together to effectively manage cybersecurity-related crises.
