Cyber-attacks and data breaches have exponentially increased in recent years with recent geopolitical tensions and the rise in ransomware incidents. Businesses need to understand the legal and business risks of these incidents and be ready to respond quickly just like any other crisis.

The British Chamber of Commerce, Shanghai’s Legal and Compliance Committee will host a hybrid sharing by legal and risk assurance experts from Clyde & Co and PwC, respectively, to discuss key issues including:

  • Common types of recent data breaches and their impacts
  • Potential workstreams that a company needs to manage and tackle during a data breach including containing and remediating the data breach, conducting a forensic investigation, and complying with notification requirements with regulators, individuals, and third parties.
  • Data breach response team and third-party service providers – who they should be and what their respective roles are.
  • Key strategic processes, tools, and deliverables that should commence following discovery of a data breach.
