Update: We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation and, like many of you, re-assessing our in-person gatherings and events over the next few months. As an immediate step, we have decided to postpone our London Breakfast Meeting and will circulate details of a webinar on this topic shortly. We thank you for your understanding.

On March 17, 2020, Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP will host a breakfast briefing in our London office, with guest speakers from Deloitte’s Cyber Breach Support team, to explore UK and EU cyber enforcement trends and discuss the current cybersecurity threat environment. In the face of record-breaking fines handed out by the regulators, securing networks, hardening systems, and protecting data from cyber attacks is becoming ever more critical. Understanding common cyber threats, including the attack vectors, how they work, and how they can be detected, is key to working with IT security colleagues to protect an organization from cyber attacks and respond to incidents.

This briefing also will analyze recent regulatory enforcement actions in the UK and across the EU to identify key lessons, discuss the areas of security compliance that regulators are focusing on and develop strategies for responding to regulator inquiries.

Discussion topics include:

  • Lessons learned from recent UK and EU enforcement action;
  • Strategies for responding to regulator inquiries;
  • Common types of cyber attacks typically experienced by organizations, how they work, the main organizational vulnerabilities being exploited and the impact they have; and
  • Cybersecurity trends for 2020, including the types of attacks seen, the main adversaries and key risk areas.

Space is limited—early registration is recommended. For more information please contact Jo Lorimer at JLorimer@HuntonAK.com.
