“When Ransomware Attacks! Why You Should Call Your Lawyer Right Away”? 

Abstract: Ransomware exploded in popularity with criminal gangs and rogue nations in 2020 during the pandemic. In early 2021, the average American began to feel real effects and major consequences from the ransomware scourge when the Colonial Pipeline attack caused gas prices to surge and created major supply shortages along the East Coast. Almost worse, an attack against one of the largest meat packers in the world could impact availability during the height of summer BBQ season. Clearly, ransomware must be met head on, but did you know that modern ransomware attacks create major legal headaches alongside the more obvious technical challenges? This presentation will discuss why you should call your attorney right away when you discover that “you’ve been pwned,” even before you call a forensics and recovery team for help!

Jake Bernstein is a partner at the firm’s Seattle office. He is a member of the Technology Transactions and Sourcing practice group, and primarily services clients under the Data Protection, Privacy, and Security focus area. Jake is also a Certified Information Systems Security Professional licensed by (ISC).2
