Join us on Tuesday, May 17 for our monthly chapter meeting with a special guest speaker:


Ransomware Response, A Lawyer’s Perspective,
Presented by Mark Rasch, Computer Security and Privacy Lawyer

Typically, response to ransomware attacks is considered to be a technical issue for CISO’s and technical staff. This session will focus on the legal issues associated with ransomware - who has responsibility for prevention of attacks, who has responsibility for response, what standards should be used? It will also discuss topics like ransomware insurance (the good, the bad and the ugly), liability for paying (or not paying) ransom, duties to customers, clients, and third parties, and other associated legal issues.
