PROGRAM

The Tricarico Institute for the Business of Law and In-House Counsel at New York Law School established the annual Tribeca Cybersecurity Summit to bring together in-house counsel and attorneys in private practice to learn about and engage on the pressing issues of defending organizations’ machines, systems, and networks from cyber harm.  The summit also seeks to expose NYLS students to these critical issues.

Attendees can expect to hear the most essential and current information related to cyber and the law, including a survey of the cyber threat landscape, best practices on cyber extortion, and how to improve cyber defenses via the negotiation of strong cyber provisions in vendor contracts.

The event will be held in-person over two days at the campus of New York Law School in lower Manhattan.
