    NACD - Board Governance in a Ransomware Attack Tabletop Exercise

    11:30 AM - 01:00 PM Virtual,

Ransomware has dominated the headlines recently, essentially becoming “the other pandemic.” Meat processor JBS recently confirmed it paid $11 million to resolve a ransomware attack and a separate attack on Colonial Pipeline resulted in fuel shortages on the East Coast before the company paid more than $4 million to attackers. Is your organization prepared? Does your Board know what to ask of management when confronted with an incident?

Join the National Association for Corporate Directors for a simulated tabletop crisis exercise, featuring leading cyber experts from the legal, insurance and strategic communications fields. The exercise will pose a real-life cyber incident scenario starting from the time a company discovers an issue.

The speakers are:

  • Moderator Kelly Kimberly, Managing Director, Sard Verbinnen; Director, JDRF Houston Gulf Coast Chapter
  • Tim Smit, VP, Global Policy & Cyber Risk Consulting Leader, Lockton
  • Bill Boeck, SVP, Insurance & Claims Cousel, Lockton
  • Michelle Reed, Partner, Akin Gump


  • 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. - Program
  • 12:30 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. - Breakout session

Attendees will receive 1 collaborative credit.

Cost: Free
