This session will walk you through a real-world ransomware attack through the lens of:

  • the counsel you call when in panic mode,
  • the forensic firm brought in to triage the situation,
  • the negotiator communicating with the threat actor,
  • the insurance claims adjuster who is evaluating all expenses, and
  • the coverage counsel you hire to maximize insurance coverage of the incident,

All with an eye toward mitigating legal risk, maximizing insurance coverage and
getting the business back online.
