Incident Response Forum 2019

A Data Breach Response Conference for Legal and Compliance Professionals
**Wednesday, April 10, 2019, The Mandarin Oriental, Washington, D.C.**
Presented by Cybersecurity Docket

 

Incident Response Forum 2019 is the only conference of its kind. It is focused solely on the field of Incident Response – the work that begins after a data breach that has quickly become the fastest growing practice area at law firms and consulting firms – and is geared specifically for the legal and compliance professionals who have emerged as critical players during the aftermath of a data security incident.

This year’s conference will take place on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, in the elegant setting of the Mandarin Oriental in Washington, D.C.  Our stellar faculty of current government cyber-prosecutors and cyber-investigators, attorneys and experts specializing in data breach response will discuss the most important and timely data breach response topics, including:

  • Why legal professionals involved in an incident response must become the quarterback of all workflow and how to handle this important responsibility;
  • The legal and compliance aftermath of a data breach, including governmental investigations and litigation, as well as the almost endless list of potential civil liabilities after a cyber-attack;
  • In plain English, the kinds of artifacts, remnants and fragments available in the aftermath of a data breach, and how, armed with the information gathered during forensic analysis, legal and compliance professionals can manage efforts to detect additional attempts by the attacker to regain access and get closer towards containment of the attack;
  • The broad range of state and federal regulatory issues, tactics and strategies encountered during an incident response, especially managing regulatory interphase and law enforcement liaison;
  • A deep dive into two highly-specialized areas of incident response: (1) retail companies (where PCI expertise is critical); and (2) financial institutions (where banking and securities expertise is critical);
  • What legal and compliance professionals need to know about the various tools and technical solutions used during an incident response, and why lawyers and compliance professionals need to participate in selecting those tools and technical solutions;
  • A detailed discussion of the nature of the international threat of cyber-attacks.  For legal and compliance professionals, understanding the international dynamic of cyber-threats is critical to represent adequately the interest of corporate clients – especially in the context of regulatory compliance; insurance claims; and privacy protections;
  • An analysis of the kinds of cyber concerns for Incident Response teams, which typically cross borders and are global in nature – mandating additional attention, expertise and oversight;
  • A discussion of the important and thoughtful preemptive measures companies should take to meet their compliance obligations and to help prepare themselves to respond., including preemptive steps that legal and compliance professionals should implement today to not only insure adequate preparation for the latest types of data breaches, but also to assure adequate compliance amid increasing regulatory scrutiny;
  • Best practices for handling the insurance issues arising after a data breach and current issues in the cyber insurance market, an area which legal and compliance professionals will need to understand during an incident response; and
  • Best practices for protecting the attorney-client privilege as it applies to the work product from digital forensic investigators and other consultants responding to a data breach.

Incident Response Forum 2019 provides an exciting and informative day of interactive panel sessions and keynote speeches to discuss how attorneys and other professionals can successfully and effectively manage an Incident Response engagement.  6 hours of CLE credit will also be available (pending in VA).
