    Today's ransomware often steals your confidential data before its encryption. Frequently, we now see two ransoms demanded, one for the decryption key and one for a promise (because cybercriminals are so honorable) to destroy your data. Many law firms are paying, sometimes because they have cyberinsurance and paying is cheaper than being inoperative for an extended period of time.

    If stricken, how should they handle the attack? Should you pay the ransomware? Is it illegal to pay the ransomware? Spoiler alert: Sometimes it is. How do you recover from a ransomware attack? Our experts will offer chilling stories of law firms crippled by ransomware along with tips for defending against and responding to ransomware.
