Fall 2021 Sessions
Understanding Ransomware and Other Cybersecurity Challenges
Presented in partnership with InfraGard Pittsburgh
Friday, November 12, 2021
8:30 a.m. to noon
Power Center Ballroom and via Zoom
In the wake of Colonial Pipeline's decision earlier this year to pay a $4.4 million ransom to DarkSide, a cybercriminal organization that had caused an operational shutdown of critical infrastructure for the country's largest refined oil delivery system, corporate and public concern about our collective vulnerability to such criminal activity has risen significantly. Together with the threats of Business Email Compromise and Spearphishing, Ransomware has emerged as a national security challenge warranting increased scrutiny.
Please join FBI Special Agent Mackenzie Monarko, data protection attorney David Ries and digital forensics expert Brett Creasy as they explore the prevention and detection of, as well as response to and recovery from these and related cybersecurity challenges to law firms, businesses and other organizations.
The Pennsylvania CLE Board has approved this course for three hours of Substantive CLE credit.
