Saul Ewing Hosts Seminar on Managing Cybersecurity Risk on a Limited Budget
Cybersecurity attacks continue to increase, resulting in compromise of privacy-protected information, theft of intellectual property, and disruption to business operations. The risks aren’t limited to multinational institutions; on the contrary, the cost of cyber risk management and incident response can have a disproportionate impact on the small and mid-size companies that have to be most cost-conscious and disciplined in their approach to managing these issues. This discussion will examine: current trends in cyberattacks across sectors including (but not limited to) manufacturing, healthcare, real estate, and retail; current trends in types of cyberattacks, including the rise of ransomware attacks; a brief overview of multi-state laws; a high-level discussion of the practical ways in which recent developments in European Union law may impact small and mid-size companies who have internet-based sales to consumers in the EU; how business entities can carry out a cyber risk assessment and develop an effective cybersecurity plan without breaking the bank; and what steps to take if you discover a cybersecurity incident but don’t have a cyber incident response plan in place. Saul Ewing is pleased to present this program which will encourage participation from attendees, and will take a practical approach to assessing and managing cybersecurity risk in a tailored and cost-effective manner. The two-hour program begins at 8:00 a.m. with registration and a light breakfast, followed by a presentation from April Doss, chair of Saul Ewing’s Cybersecurity and Privacy practice.
