The trend of companies falling victim to ransomware attacks and other cybersecurity incidents continues.  Recently, there has been a shift in courts’ views about whether the communications between companies and the vendors that assist them in responding to these incidents, and the reports issued by these vendors, are covered by the attorney-client privilege.  In 2021, several courts rejected claims that incident response reports are privileged. The potential ramifications of these decisions are significant.

Our speakers will discuss:

  • Recent judicial decisions relating to the issue of privilege between companies and their cybersecurity vendors (15 minutes)
  • Discovery and admissibility of non-privileged information about cyber incident response in litigation and regulatory proceedings (15 minutes)
  • Updating your incident response plan based on these decisions (15 minutes)
  • The increasing focus on the involvement of the Board of Directors (15 minutes)


Program Level: Update

Intended Audience: In-house counsel, outside attorneys, compliance, technology, and other allied professionals interested in issues surrounding cybersecurity and cyber incident response
