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, attorneys in private practice, and NYLS students to learn about and engage in the pressing issues of defending organizations’ machines, systems, and networks from cyber harm. 

Attendees can expect to hear the most essential and current information related to cybersecurity 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.
