Cybersecurity attacks are on the rise, and companies in all industries must confront those threats or risk serious (and sometimes existential) financial and reputational consequences. BFKN partner John M. Geiringer is hosting a webinar panel discussion with James Dever and Douglas Zloto, two uniquely qualified experts who have been at the forefront of our nation’s cyber responsive efforts.

Drawing on guidance from regulators, law enforcement, the military, the intelligence community, and the private sector, the discussion will provide practical advice to help companies better understand the dynamic cyber threat landscape, and understand how they should respond.
