The DOJ’s new civil cyberfraud initiative heightens the importance for all organizations — even those that don’t work with government contracts — to review their cybersecurity program and meet cybersecurity compliance standards.

Under the Department of Justice (DOJ) standards, organizations that knowingly misrepresent being compliant are committing cyberfraud.

What’s the likelihood that small and midsized organizations — not only the traditional larger organizations — will be targeted under the DOJ’s new civil fraud initiative? Hear from B. Stephanie Siegmann, a former National Security Chief and experienced trial attorney, about the new initiative, its renewed emphasis on corporate crime, and its intention to use the False Claims Act to bring cyber-related claims against companies that commit cyberfraud.

This session, hosted by Hinckley Allen & Snyder, Security Vitals, and Plante Moran, is important for any executive concerned about their organization’s ability to meet compliance standards. It’s important for organizations of all sizes, in all industries, to understand the potential risks of accepting contracts under the pretense of being compliant.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn how to avoid the pitfalls of cyberfraud.
  • Understand the DOJ’s new civil cyberfraud initiative and its potential impact on your organization.
  • Define expectations for managing compliance.
  • Develop a plan for accurate corporate compliance reporting.
