Course Description

Cybersecurity is a strategic business enterprise risk. Double extortion ransomware is the latest iteration of cybercrime that keeps the C-suite up at night. The gaps in your privacy program are laid bare in a ransomware situation. 

What do you do when your IT director calls and tells you your network has been encrypted and there is a ransom note demanding $500,000? Did the threat actor exfiltrate data? Do you contact the threat actor, and how do you negotiate? What do you tell your customers and employees while you try to get your network running again? When do you call law enforcement? How long will your forensic investigation take? Will the attorney general knock on your door? 

Join Justin Daniels, a cybersecurity SME and business attorney, as he weaves for you a data breach tale that has become commonplace in 2021. He will be joined by Jodi Daniels, CEO of Red Clover Advisors and privacy professional. Jodi and Justin will discuss the people, processes, and technology needed to improve your chances of not becoming the next ransomware tale.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify best approaches to triage a cyber situation, especially when most companies are ill-prepared

  • Recognize how to manage forensics, customers' concerns, ransomware negotiation, and law enforcement stakeholders

  • Identify how to navigate the state breach notification law and if CCPA or HIPAA applies

  • List the considerations in tackling cyber insurance
