The promulgation of cyber-attacks, and more specifically ransomware, has been on the radar of information security experts for years. However, the threat has increasingly become a concern to executives and boards.
It has become clear that mitigating and responding to these threats is no longer strictly an IT issue and requires an enterprise-wide response. We have also reached the tipping point where we are seeing increased intervention and activity to mitigate this risk by business partners, government agencies, regulators and within the insurance industry. The question for many executives remains, how do we effectively navigate this volatile and uncertain landscape. Businesses have recognized that, in many cases, traditional strategies no longer work. During this conversation, BDO and Holland & Knight will discuss the impacts that ransomware is having on companies’ risk mitigation strategies, the legal and regulatory environment and within the insurance industry. They will share case studies and review risk mitigation strategies that have proven effective in the current volatile and uncertain cyber risk environment.
