Foley Partner Jennifer Rathburn, member of the firm’s Technology Transactions & Outsourcing Practice, will present at the Midwest Cyber Security Alliance meeting held in the Foley Milwaukee office on March 22, 2018. Foley is pleased to have Sikich LLP join us as co-sponsor of the event.

Rapid response to a security incident is critical. Failing to quickly and efficiently address an incident can result in lost revenue from business disruption, increased expenses related to state and regulatory fines and investigations, exposure to lawsuits, and damage to your business’ reputation.

Is your team sufficiently prepared to respond in the event of a security incident? Are you confident that each team member understands the procedures to follow, and that those procedures are effective in both responding to the existing threat and defending against future incidents?

The best way to answer these questions is to conduct periodic incident response tabletop exercises or simulations. By testing your incident response plan and procedures via real-world simulations, you can assess readiness, identify gaps and vulnerabilities, and make modifications to meet your current needs on an ongoing basis. Want to experience an incident response simulation in action?

Join us at the next Midwest Cyber Security Alliance meeting for an interactive session that places you in the shoes of a business executive at a mock company and tasks you with navigating the many challenges associated with suffering a major data breach. Through a series of multiple choice questions and conversations with our panel of industry consultants along the way, you will weigh difficult decisions and ultimately decide the fate of your organization.
