Over the last several years we have all seen many news stories about computer hackers who take over and encrypt the coputers and data of businesses, municipalities, government agencies, and individuals. These criminals then demand payment in order to grant the owner access to their data. The threat to your computer data from cyber criminals is real. Because of an attorney's obligation to protect their client's data and confidential information, this is a risk that all attorneys should be prepared to prevent. Think it can't happen to you? Wrong. This program includes the experience from a Rochester attorney whose files and data were taken hostage and held for ransom. In addition, you will hear from a computer expert and investigators who work to prevent ransomware and to prosecute the criminals behind these crimes.
