Mayer Brown Launches New Guide on Cybersecurity

Mayer Brown announced that the firm launched a new guide, “Preparing For and Responding To a Computer Security Incident: Making the First 72 Hours Count,” which offers insights on how to prepare for a computer security incident and how to implement a timely, effective response.

The guide’s launch coincides with the beginning of National Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) 2015. Mayer Brown is an official Champion of NCSAM.

The 60-page guide serves as a valuable resource for in-house counsel, executives and other stakeholders as they undertake the important work of assessing and strengthening their companies’ incident response capabilities. The guide is designed to:

  • Guide companies as they develop written computer security incident response plans and implement them in response to an incident;
  • Provide an overview of applicable regulatory requirements; and
  • Help board members, senior management, in-house counsel and other stakeholders anticipate and minimize financial, reputational and legal harm.
