Data, privacy & cybersecurity partner and co-chair Edward McNicholas (Washington, D.C.) presented at the Cybersecurity Docket Incident Response Forum Masterclass 2021 “Incident Response – State of Play” virtual panel on April 8. The event was geared to legal and compliance professionals who are critical during the aftermath of a data security incident.
Ed and the panelists addressed topics including current industry trends, cybersecurity insurance markets, cybersecurity certifications, threat containment as well as ransomware risks, economics and enforcement.
With a rise in the scale of ransomware attacks, increased ransom demands, the emergence of public data-shaming, and recent military cyber attacks on privacy companies, Ed suggested the development of a global cyber war “Geneva Convention” to address the growth in threats.
