“Best Practices to Leading Post-Cyber Incident Forensic Investigations and Understanding Litigation Implications Surrounding Forensic Reports”
Thursday, March 28 | 2:30 pm – 4:40 pm ET | Webinar

Given the proliferation of litigation stemming from cybersecurity incidents, organizations need to understand how legal teams direct forensic investigations in order must ensure forensic reports align with anticipated litigation scenarios. A forensic report is normally prepared by a cybersecurity firm following a thorough investigation into the nature and scope of a company’s cybersecurity incident. A report will generally identify areas in which a company’s IT infrastructure was not compliant with best practices, regulations and/or industry standards, or whether a third-party vendor is responsible for the gap in a company’s IT infrastructure – all evidence that could substantiate future legal claims, either if a company wants to go on the offensive or if the company must defend itself.

Join Colin Jennings, Katy Spicer and Meghan Quinn for this free CLE accredited webinar to better understand how to effectively lead a post-cyber incident forensic investigation and related discovery implications.

On March 11, 2024, US President Joe Biden released his Fiscal Year (FY) 2025 budget request, which included proposals on U.S. Artificial Intelligence (AI) development and efforts to implement the Biden Administration’s Executive Order (EO) on AI. The budget identifies the National Science Foundation (NSF) as central to U.S. leadership in AI, requesting $10.2 billion in funding for the agency. $2 billion of that total would be dedicated to research and development (R&D) in accordance with CHIPS Act priorities, including AI, and $30 million would support the National AI Research Resource pilot program. The budget also requests $65 million for the Commerce Department “to safeguard, regulate, and promote AI, including protecting the American public against its societal risks.” This funding would include directing the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to establish the U.S. AI Safety Institute. The institute would be responsible for operationalizing “NIST’s AI Risk Management Framework by creating guidelines, tools, benchmarks, and best practices for evaluating and mitigating dangerous capabilities and conducting evaluations including red-teaming to identify and mitigate AI risk.” Further, the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science, which is responsible for implementing aspects of both the CHIPS Act and the AI EO, would receive $8.6 billion under the President’s proposed budget.Continue Reading Biden Budget Proposal Advances AI Priorities

According to reports originally from Bloomberg News, President Joe Biden is preparing to issue an executive order (EO) aimed at prohibiting US adversaries from accessing US personal data. While the draft is subject to change, the draft EO reportedly targets “highly sensitive” data, including genetic and location information, and would bar foreign adversaries from obtaining this data through legal means such as intermediaries, data brokers, third-party vendors, employment agreements, or investment agreements. Further, the EO would reportedly require that entities owned, controlled, or operated by countries of concern turn over data to the US government when requested. Significantly, the draft EO would restrict US entities and individuals from conducting data transactions that would provide adversarial countries with government-related or sensitive personal data, in addition to data that could jeopardize US national security. Continue Reading President Biden Prepares Executive Order to Prohibit Foreign Adversaries’ Access to US Data
