Ransomware, phishing attacks, data breaches, and various types of cyber threats have become commonplace occurrences within the Canadian landscape. Organizations are facing an explosion of cyberattacks with more than 85 percent of Canadian companies experiencing at least one cyberattack in 2021.* With these statistics, it is critical to understand how to respond when an attack hits – every minute counts.
This workshop-style session will take in-house counsel through common attack vectors and review a step-by-step guide to incident response including: escalation, mitigation, investigations, involving third party experts, navigating ransomware, notification and reporting, federal and provincial regulatory obligations, internal and external communication strategies, and maintaining privilege. This hands-on workshop is designed to prepare in-house counsel for front line response in the face of cyberattacks.
