Firm presents webinar on 'The Dark Side of Crypto'

Butzel Long will present the webinar “The Dark Side of Crypto:  Navigating Cybersecurity Incidents and Ransom Demands” on Tuesday, May 25, from noon to 1 p.m. via Zoom.

Notwithstanding the positive impact and promise of digital assets, history has shown this technology can be used to facilitate illegal activity.  In particular, digital assets are often in the news for their connection to high-profile data breaches or ransomware events, with bad actors demanding payment in Bitcoin or Monero.  With the recent uptick in ransomware events—Continental Pipeline is an example—industry experts are now calling for additional efforts to regulate digital asset markets, and government agencies are sharing analytic tools that track cryptocurrency payments.

This webinar, co-presented by Butzel attorneys Claudia Rast and William Kraus and forensic expert Scott Bailey of N1 Discovery, will provide practical guidance for businesses regarding this issue, and offer suggestions on how to prepare for, deal with, and remediate a cybersecurity event.
