Ransomware and Insolvency: Avoiding Pitfalls and Dealing with Disasters

October 2021


In our latest webinar, we move away from a legal discussion on the most recent insolvency case law, and instead cover a real-world topic that has begun to strike fear in the hearts of insolvency professionals everywhere: ransomware. Ransomware affects every industry, and the recent attack on a Canadian  company in receivership serves as a cautionary tale to insolvency professionals about the growing threat of cybercrime in our own industry.

Join us for an informative half-hour discussion in which our expert panel discusses what ransomware is, best practices for avoiding ransomware attacks, and how to deal with an emergency situation when something has gone wrong. We’ll cover, among other things, the following:

  • what ransomware is and why lenders, trustees and insolvency lawyers need to be aware of the issue;
  • best practices before a formal filing, including what a lender or a trustee doing an assessment of a borrower should have on its radar;
  • what a court officer can do on day one to mitigate the risk of cyber threats in the event of a filing; and
  • how to handle a situation where something has gone wrong, including the steps a court officer should take if the debtor’s servers have been hacked.
