Russia’s attack on Ukraine has resulted in historic and escalating U.S. sanctions, impacting companies who do business with Russia or Russian-affiliates and creating risks even for companies who do not. Since 2020, the number and sophistication of ransomware attacks has spiked, largely perpetuated by organized criminal groups in Russia and Eastern Europe. In light of recent warnings by the White House for companies and critical infrastructure to be on alert for an onslaught of cyber-attacks, understanding the threat landscape and legal issues around making a ransom payment is more important than ever.
Please join Greenberg Traurig attorneys who have been closely monitoring the conflict, for an overview of the state of U.S. sanctions in the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and a discussion of the intersection with cyber-attacks, including how companies can prepare now to respond quickly, effectively, and within the confines of the law, and how we might expect U.S. authorities to respond to this threat.
