Data security incidents are a significant risk to most organizations – and a poorly executed response can lead to significant liability. Ensuring your organization’s breach response strategy is effective will enhance reputation and public trust and minimize the potential harms that can result. Join with peers from other organizations and participate in a scenario-based tabletop exercise and group discussion that will test your incident response smarts and provide you with practical tips and strategies that you can apply in managing your next incident.

Format & Tabletop Exercise

You’ve been in-house counsel to the University of the Interior for only a month when the VP Finance receives a demand from a group named “h04x”: “Pay up our your data will be dumped online.” Can you help the University in its time of crises?

A panel of lawyers from Hicks Morley’s team of breach coaches, together with an outside crises communications expert (Karen Gordon, Gordon Strategy) and IT forensics expert (Ryan Duquette) will facilitate this complimentary session.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the program, attendees will gain an understanding of:

  • The pressure to act versus the need to wait
  • The need to challenging assumptions
  • Costs and benefits of obtaining outside help
  • Good and bad messaging

Our presenters will invite questions and remain behind for any informal discussions you may wish to have.

Please note that in order to maximize the experience of attendees, spaces in the workshop will be limited. We encourage you to register early to avoid disappointment.
