Adding to ransomware and supply-chain cyber-attacks, the recent Log4j mass cyber-vulnerability again underscores the critical nature which cyber-security issues play in our society and economy. Yet while this latest “zero-day” attack has been described with attention-grabbing headlines about the dangers that it poses, precious little commentary has addressed just what the vulnerability is and why it matters -- and should matter -- to in-house and outside counsel and to corporate managers and directors.
In this timely session, a subject matter expert in the law of data security and privacy will discuss how businesses and other organizations can understand and navigate the legal and practical issues surrounding Log4j and similar vulnerabilities as well as the opportunities it presents to enhance an organization’s cyber-resilience and cyber-maturity.
In this session Joseph V. DeMarco of DeMarco Law, PLLC and Anthony Basile of AllianceBernstein L.P. will discuss:
- Key aspects of the Log4j vulnerability and the context in which to understand it (15 minutes)
- Critical legal issues that inside counsel, senior managers, Boards of Directors and IT security professionals must understand to address the risks posed by the vulnerability (30 minutes)
- How to leverage Log4j as an opportunity to enhance compliance, best practices, and cyber-resilience across an organization (15 minutes)
