Ransomware Reality: Protecting IT Infrastructure From Crippling Malware Attacks
The frightening number of ransomware attacks in recent years raises serious questions about the vulnerability to hacking of our nation's businesses, utilities and municipalities to due to inadequate cybersecurity.

Class-action lawsuits are being brought against organizations that failed to protect their information technology, resulting in exposure of personal identity details and lost revenues down the supply chain.

What is the role of cybersecurity lawyers in helping their clients prevent these kinds of attacks? And what about the ethics of paying ransom to hackers to restore critical IT services? Does that simply encourage the bad actors to continue?

We will hear from three cybersecurity experts: Jerry Bodman, J.D. '03, an adjunct professor at UB Law and senior counsel and privacy officer at Dragos, a Maryland company focusing on Industrial Control System (ICS) cybersecurity; David Katz, J.D. '99, a partner and cybersecurity team leader at Adams and Reese LLP in Atlanta; and Todd Carter, chief information and chief digital officer for the City of Baltimore.

Moderating the discussion will be Professor William Hubbard, director of the law school's Center for the Law of Intellectual Property and Technology.
