Data breaches are beginning to affect every sector and industry and regulation is beginning to increase to address these breaches. The second episode in our cybersecurity series, join hosts Ailsa Bloomer and Andrew McCoomb as they dig into how best to manage a data privacy breach. What constitutes a breach?

For the discussion, we welcome back Imran Ahmad, co-head of information governance, privacy and cybersecurity and head of Norton Rose Fulbright’s technology sector.

Episode 2: Ransomware

Imagine you are the victim of a ransomware attack. A hacker gains access to your data and encrypts your files so you can't use them. When you log in to your system, you are confronted with a ransom demand; you’ve got to pay up if you want your data back. The ransomware industry is booming and attacks are up 151% this year compared to 2020. And the chaos it's causing is becoming more widespread. What does this mean for Canadian businesses? How are hacker techniques changing? Should you ever pay a ransom? What legal issues are engaged when defending a ransomware attack? Join hosts Ailsa Bloomer and Andrew McCoomb as they interview John Cassell and Imran Ahmad to get answers to these questions. John and Imran are Canadian co-heads of Norton Rose Fulbright’s cybersecurity team.
