Last Updated: March 31 2017

A Discussion of Emerging Cyber Threats with Morrison & Foerster's John P. Carlin

As technology becomes ever more complex, and as we digitize an increasing number of our most valuable assets, the scope and scale of cyberattacks and risks are proliferating at an unprecedented rate. Now more than ever, cyber issues are keeping boards of directors and senior management up at night.

Although it will never be possible to build walls high enough to prevent every cyber attack, there are many steps that companies can take to address and mitigate the risks, as well as respond appropriately when a compromise occurs. Security incidents can present significant risks to companies across every industry sector in a number of different ways, including damage to brand and reputation, loss of sales or customer churn, financial penalties, and legal exposure.

This Data Protection Masterclass will feature Morrison & Foerster's John P. Carlin, who will discuss the current cyber landscape, including emerging threats and practical guidance on how you and your organization can remain resilient in preparing for and responding to these challenges. Topics to be addressed include:

  • Blended threats
  • The weaponizing of information
  • Cybersecurity in the IoT era
  • The threat to B2B companies
  • Economic/industrial espionage
  • Cyber as a threat vector
  • Ransomware
