McDermott Will & Emery, in partnership with Alvarez & Marsal is hosting a tailored webinar, discussing the cyber security threats and mitigations facing private equity firms in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
One of the most immediate priorities at both the enterprise and portfolio level will be ensuring adequate cash flow through this crisis and maintaining critical operations with a remote workforce. While attending to these concerns, private equity firms should be aware that cybercriminals have been actively taking advantage of this disruption, creating a dramatically increased cyber risk landscape. With your high-value data and large cash movements, private equity firms are an attractive target for cybercriminals and ransomware attacks.
We are bringing together an intimate group of private equity leaders to discuss implementing practical steps to best mitigate the risks and provide insights into the cyber landscape moving forward.
We will be joined by financial services cyber experts including Lorenzo Grillo, the Managing Director of Alvarez & Marsal Cyber Risk Services practice in Europe and Jonathan Rigby, Chief Cyber Officer for Liberty Global Group.
