On March 2, 2015, HuffPost Live interviewed four cybersecurity experts in response to a top financial regulator’s warning of an “Armageddon-type cyber event” that could eventually affect the U.S. economy. Lisa Sotto, partner and chair of the Global Privacy and Cybersecurity practice at Hunton & Williams LLP, was featured, describing the threat as legitimate and stressing that hackers are becoming more creative, sophisticated and motivated. She also emphasized that cybersecurity is a high-level governance issue for companies, not an IT matter.
The segment addressed the question of how companies can protect themselves and provided examples of previous attacks and their repercussions.
