Risk Mitigation: The current state of domestic and international cyber liability and what your organization can do to guard against and respond to cyber threats.

This presentation will include a round table discussion of the various types of “hacking” incidents that can occur, including what is malware, ransomware, etc., along with different methods hackers will use to gain access to your systems. We will discuss the various state-by-state breach response requirements and how they differ from Federal statutes and international regulations. The panelists will examine the role corporate leadership should plan in an organization and concrete steps they can take to guard against attacks and how to elegantly and effectively respond when they cannot.
