Seminar | July.11.2017 | 9:00am - 10:30am (Tokyo Standard Time)Orrick Tokyo
Orrick’s Tokyo Office Litigation Group is hosting a series of monthly “Orrick Library” seminars to explore legal issues in various fields in Japan as well as the United States, Asia and Europe. The next seminar will be held on Tuesday, July 11 from 9:00 am to 10:30 am.
As the global “WannaCry” ransomware attack earlier this year highlighted, a ransomware attack is a key threat to even the most sophisticated businesses. In 2016, hackers attacked about half of all U.S. companies with some type of ransomware. Not only are the attacks on the rise, but every week new ransomware variants appear in the internet ecosystem. Ransomware attacks can pose an immediate threat to a company’s business, with the potential to shut down operations if effective safeguards and response protocols are not in place. There are legal risks as well. Regulators have become more attentive to the growing number of attacks, and some have made proclamations about how companies should respond that fundamentally change the legal compliance landscape, requiring the merger of business continuity and disaster recovery plans with incident response activities.
Our 90-minute long seminar will discuss:
The scope of the ransomware threat to your business,
Steps to take to prevent ransomware attacks, including obtaining cyber insurance coverage, and
How to respond when your company is hit with ransomware

今年世界的に猛威を振るっているランサムウェア「WannaCry」 の攻撃により明確になったのは、最も洗練されたビジネスにとっても、ランサムウェアの攻撃が重要な脅威となるということでした。 2016年の1年間で、米国内の約半数の企業がハッカーから何らかのタイプのランサムウェア攻撃を受けています。また、攻撃が増えているばかりでなく、毎週新しいランサムウェアの亜種がインターネットのエコシステムに現れています。ランサムウェアの攻撃は、企業のビジネスに直接的な脅威を与える可能性があり、効果的な措置と対応プロトコルがなければ、ビジネスを停止せざるを得ない最悪の事態まで考えられます。
