Jones Day's 2021 Speaker Series: Held Hostage: What Happens When You're a Victim of Ransomware


12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. EDT

After years of being a relative annoyance, ransomware attackers have evolved to become the No. 1 cyber threat to companies today. While the public can read about the big-name victims and the rumored sums of money some have paid, most companies will never understand what it's like to be a victim of a major ransomware attack until they experience it themselves.

Please join us for a webinar examining this growing threat. Our panel of professionals will provide case studies of ransomware attacks and will discuss legal, business, and PR consequences that companies should be prepared for in the event of an attack. In addition, the panelists will discuss what companies should expect from the U.S. Department of Justice in the heat of a ransomware attack.
