Business Cyber Attacks: What You Need to Know

Fri June 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


The following webinar is presented through a partnership between the World Trade Centre Winnipeg, The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce and TDS Law LLP.

Presenter: Doug Tait, TDS Law LLP

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought with it a significant increase in cyberattacks. Small to Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) are particularly at risk, as these businesses don’t have the same resources that larger organizations have and the ‘bad guys’ know it.

Attendess will learn:
1. Potential legal and non-legal risks, costs and consequences of a cyberattack
2. Proactive remedies and solutions to mitigate cyber risks and avoid costly litigation
3. The role of a cyber-security lawyer and other professionals on the cyber response team (lawyer, IT consultants, public relations, etc.)

Doug is a founding member of Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP’s Privacy and Data Protection Practice Group. He advises clients on privacy, data protection and cyber-security matters, including legal obligations, compliance with provincial, federal and international privacy laws, risk minimization and management strategies, creation and implementation of privacy, data protection and cyber security policies, procedures and practices, data breach reporting and notification matters, incidence response planning, external vendor/service provider risk mitigation, including contract review, and cyber insurance, including policy review. Doug’s Technology practice focuses on the negotiation and drafting of technology related agreements including service agreements and software-as-a-service (SAAS) agreements.

The day before the event, we will send you a confirmation email with the link to join the seminar online. Online registration will close an hour prior to the event.
