What would the worst day in the office look like for an inhouse lawyer or compliance professional? Your computer not starting, or perhaps forgetting to save an important document? What about a serious ransomware attack?

Responding to security incidents that place your company in jeopardy is a business-critical activity that involves not only the board, but counsel, data protection officers, insurers, crisis communications agencies and security professionals.

Fox Williams were delighted to partner with Kroll in a crisis simulation workshop that guided you through how to respond to a ransomware attack.

Chaired by Kolvin Stone, Head of Technology at Fox Williams and Ioan Peters, managing director in Kroll’s cyber risk practice, this simulation helped to understand:

  • The critical steps in responding to a security incident during the first 24 hrs
  • The main legal issues arising out of a ransomware attack
  • The team and critical functions needed to respond to an attack
  • Preparing for and managing legal and regulatory risk
  • How to respond when the attack becomes public and the role of PR

Our simulation involved the following experts who advised the Board of ACME Corp:

  • Wee Lin Chua, VP & Privacy Counsel at NBC Universal, will play the role of inhouse counsel advising on privacy considerations
  • Simon Pugh, Portland Communications, will represent external PR and cover crisis comms
  • David Butler, Head of Civil fraud at Fox Williams, will act as external counsel and advise on legal privilege, collection and preservation of evidence and legal risk management
