Above Board Podcast: 2021 Cyber Events Shaping the Horizon

MoFo Perspectives Podcast

18 Oct 2021

The alarming rise in cybersecurity attacks in 2021 has raised risk mitigation stakes to a new level for boards.

In this episode of MoFo’s Above Board podcast, host, co-chair of MoFo’s Corporate Finance | Capital Markets practice, and former Chief Counsel of the SEC’s Division of Corporation Finance Dave Lynn speaks with Alex Iftimie, co-chair of MoFo’s Global Risk and Crisis Management group, and Brandon Van Grack, who also co-chairs the group and serves as co-chair of the firm’s National Security practice. Both are former senior DOJ officials who bring their vast experience in cybersecurity to analyze the top cyber events that have defined 2021 thus far and provide practical guidance in response to the following key questions:

  • What are the key cybersecurity threats that boards of directors should be focused on?
  • What role should boards be playing in a cyber incident like a ransomware attack?
  • What action do you expect to see from U.S. government with respect to cybersecurity?
