Following that scenario, there will be a discussion about forensic investigations and the 4 ‘Cs’ (collaboration, cooperation, coordination and communication) when trying to contain and respond to a cyberattack. 

In addition there will be a panel discussion about legal crisis management and the other legal issues arising from a cyber breach, such as cyber insurance, reputational, supply chain, data protection and disputes.
