New York, NY (PRWEB) October 16, 2017
Metropolitan Corporate Counsel is pleased to announce the publication of our Special Section dedicated to Cybersecurity.
Each time we compile a special section on cybersecurity, we’re struck by how many new developments there are. This package of six articles should showcase the point. Leading off the section is Akin Gump's Michelle Reed, who offers an analysis of the New York Department of Financial Service's new regulations. A number of the articles pay particular attention to assessing and reducing risk. Additionally, Joshua Gold of Anderson Kill provides a warning on the pitfalls when purchasing cyber insurance and an exhortation on how in-house lawyers can play a larger role in this area. We hear from IBM's first chief cybersecurity counsel, as well as AlixPartners' Gretchen Ruck, who discusses how companies should prepare for ransomware and emphasizes the need for dialogue about cybersecurity to reach the C-suite level.
