In early 2020, the company SolarWinds suffered a massive cybersecurity breach of its software that went undetected for many months and had the effect of compromising a number of U.S. government agencies in addition to many private sector companies. Our understanding of the scale and scope of the attack is still unfolding, and the breach will constitute an early challenge for the Biden Administration. As more information comes out about the breadth of the hack—widely suspected to be the product of a foreign espionage campaign—and its impact on both the U.S. government and the private sector, our panelists will address what happened, who has responsibility, what is the legal landscape, and what can be done to address the breach.

This event was approved for 1.0 New York State CLE credit in the category of Areas of Professional Practice. The credit is both transitional and non-transitional; it is appropriate for both experienced and newly admitted attorneys. CLE Readings
