Lessons from the Ransomware Trenches

By Gina Ginn Greenwood, JD, CIPP/US

ACC Georgia

With ransomware attacks on the rise, partner Gina Greenwood recently met with members of the Georgia Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC Georgia) to share her lessons from the trenches. Along with co-panelists Brett Anderson, chief operating officer of Tracepoint Forensics, and Bennett L. Cox, general counsel of the University of Tennessee Medical Center, Greenwood urged attendees to take steps now to prevent and prepare for attacks in order to reduce risks to their company brand and data.

Of the key points discussed at the event, Greenwood emphasized a multi-layered security approach remains essential. She urged attendees to consider robust strategies, yet to focus on employee education and the development of practical policies, procedures and plans to ensure successful outcomes. Greenwood further commended the tireless work of IT professionals to avoid and mitigate the ever-increasing onslaught of attacks, and the panelists agreed attendees should keep their boards abreast of these activities to maintain a productive and understanding relationship.
