Cyber criminals have targeted state and local governmental entities at an alarming rate. The threat and scale of cyber-attacks is unprecedented. Bracewell lawyers Phil Bezanson, Ed Fierro and David Springer will host a webinar to highlight the risks that cyber-attacks pose to state and local governmental entities by analyzing examples of attacks on certain municipalities in the United States. We will discuss how cyber-attacks impact budgets, financings, credit ratings, public trust and the functioning of critical infrastructure. Also, we will address how to prepare for and reduce the risk of a cyber-attack if – or when – it happens.
