Beware of Ransomware - Cybercrime in the Time of the Pandemic


12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. EST

Cybercrime has increased dramatically during the pandemic, and businesses, many of which are working remotely, find themselves vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Through an interactive tabletop exercise focused on a ransomware attack, our panelists will cover the full lifecycle of these events. They will offer insights on how to mitigate and manage cyber risks and liabilities by having a well-crafted insurance program, including how to remediate gaps in cyber insurance coverage, and how to handle the aftermath of a cyber event. Our speakers will also discuss the potential legal and business implications of the recent advisory issued by the US Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Control Assets (OFAC) on sanctions risks for facilitating ransomware payments.
