Robin Nunn speaks at the DC Bar Association on “The Rise of Ransomware: Causes, Lessons Learned, and Implications.” 2022 is expected to see a dramatic increase in ransomware attacks. This webinar will  examine this growing threat. Our panel of professionals will provide case studies of ransomware attacks, including the use of cryptocurrencies and the role of cybersecurity, and will discuss legal, business, and PR consequences that companies should be prepared for in the event of an attack. In addition, the panelists will discuss what companies should expect from authorities, regulators, financial institutions, the virtual asset community, and law enforcement.
