HOUSTON (PRWEB) December 21, 2017
Lex Mundi has published a new report, "Into the Cyber-Breach: How CLOs Build Organizational Resilience and Lead During Crises."
The report analyzes findings from the annual Lex Mundi Summit in Amsterdam, where senior in-house counsel, member firm lawyers and other experts compared experience-based insights on management practices during structured working groups.
The report discusses three broad ways that general counsel help to build to organizational resilience and provide leadership to address the cross-border nature of cyber-breaches:
- Strengthening resistance to attack through basic cyber-hygiene
- Preparing to respond to the inevitable cyber-crisis
- Adapting the legal department to permanent cyber-vulnerability
Also included in the report are expert contributions on the global threat landscape, the evolving web of regulation, the challenges posed by data-privacy regimes and general guidance for communicating in times of cyber-crises.
The report forms part of a suite of unique knowledge resources to support in-house legal teams in their handling of cyber-breaches, all of which can be found online at http://www.lexmundi.com/cyber-security.
