Asked: Our weekly question to the In-House community

Companies could be at risk for cyberattacks. At least according to their general counsels.

A new survey by Consero Group found that 30 percent of general counsels believe their companies are not prepared for a potential cyberattack. And about 28 percent surveyed said there had been a cybersecurity breach at their company in the last year.

So here’s our question for you:

Has your company discussed cyberattacks? What role does a general counsel play in protecting against cybersecurity breaches?
