Cyber extortion has reached new proportions, including six-figure ransomware payments. Considering the payoff, cybersecurity experts expect these attacks to only increase. This session will explore the legal implications of a ransomware attack for sectors such as healthcare, financial, and others.  Issues include OCR’s proposal of treating a ransomware attack as a data breach, as well as practical advice for how to deal with various matters that emerge as a result of an attack. Forensic legal challenges, such as possession of other victim’s data on compromised system will be also part of the discussion.
