IP Lawyer is First Call Made by Ransomware Victim

The attached article titled, “Why a trucking company called a lawyer minutes after a ransomware attack,” published in Freight Waves yesterday, and written by Nate Tabak, is a MUST read.

Here is one quote from the article:

“Lawyers like Palmer often are one of the first calls ransomware victims or their insurers make after an attack. They play central roles — sometimes becoming the focal point — of a response to an attack, including the investigation, recovery process, any disclosure of data breaches and even negotiations with the hackers.”
