The risk of cyber attacks on U.S. businesses increased in 2022 and is poised to rise again in 2023. There has been a surge in malware attacks—in particular, ransomware attacks—which have crippled businesses across the country. With a rise in such attacks comes the risk of data loss, reputational damage, and legal action. Compounding the challenges associated with incident response is the laborious process of analyzing and complying with 50 different state data breach notification laws.
This panel will overview the key milestones associated with incident response from initiating a forensics investigation to notifying affected consumers and state regulators. In addition, this panel will discuss best practices for analyzing state data breach notification laws and complying with varied reporting and notification deadlines in each state.
