A competent and effective response to a cyber incident requires advance consideration of many issues. In this program, Carole Buckner, Partner at the Procopio law firm in San Diego and a member of the firms Privacy and Cybersecurity Practice Group, and Christopher â€œTodd Doss, Managing Director at Ankura in Washington DC, will assist attendees in developing an incident response plan in advance of a data breach. The speakers will discuss who should be on the incident response team, including internal and external members, and strategies for training for an effective response. The panel will also discuss the roles of legal counsel (in-house and outside counsel) in the development of a response strategy and preservation of attorney client privilege. Insurance considerations in a data breach incident will be addressed. Partnering with an external forensic consultant is a cornerstone of a strong incident response plan, both to address the breach and to preserve evidence. Mr. Doss, a former FBI Assistant Director, who now focuses on cybersecurity and crisis management, will address current trends and the role of a forensic specialist, and interaction with law enforcement.
