Ready, Set, Respond – Hogan Lovells Launches Online Global Cybersecurity Resource Portal

27 September 2016

Just a glance at the headlines confirms it: cybercrime is soaring spectacularly. And as a result, cybersecurity law and regulation around the world are coming of age. In this complex and sensitive environment, it is not surprising that lawyers are increasingly being asked to guide on governance, counsel on compliance and risk allocation, and lead in the event of a cyber incident.

From their work counseling clients across the globe, Hogan Lovells’ cross-practice team of cybersecurity lawyers is at the forefront of understanding the tools in-house counsel need to navigate this rapidly evolving landscape. We developed Ready, Set, Respond in order to provide clients with practical and accessible perspectives on some of the challenges we know they face.

  • Prepare for the inevitable. Experts agree that almost every organization will need to manage through a cybersecurity incident at some point, and leaders across industries rank threats to digital data and systems as a top risk.  Having an effective, considered and current incident response plan (IRP) that unites an organization’s internal functions is mission critical to managing a breach or other cybersecurity occurrence with minimized damage. Nonetheless, nearly 70% of respondents to a major national survey were not confident that their plans would in fact be effective in the face of an incident. To help you determine how your IRP stacks up against industry standards, we’ve developed a diagnostic tool that will help you assess how ready you really are. 

  • Understand the evolving landscape. With many organizations now global in scope, having current knowledge of cybersecurity-related regulation and legislation around the world that may affect your operations is invaluable. To keep you up to speed without a huge time investment, we have developed practical and readable summaries of cybersecurity policy, legal, and regulatory developments in key jurisdictions in the Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. 

Hogan Lovells understands the strategic importance of cybersecurity to business, and we aim to do our part to help look ahead, shape, and apply the legal and regulatory standards and frameworks that will be necessary to help industry and government address this most challenging of issues.
