If cybercrime were a country, some experts predict that by 2025 it would have the world’s third-largest economy.  Hence, cybercrime is a growing concern for many enterprises.

Against this landscape, the Swedish Business Council is delighted to invite you to a breakfast seminar on this critical issue. Attendees will hear from two experts from the Swedish Business Council’s corporate members: Addleshaw Goddard, an international law firm, and Securitas, a global security provider and one of Sweden’s largest companies.

The first part of the seminar will take you through some of the key legal issues that arise after a cyber attack and how these can be mitigated.  The second part will cover best practices when it comes to protecting your business, with insights from data protection experts.

This will be followed by a Q&A session with the speakers.

Nic Henrikson is a dispute resolution partner at Addleshaw Goddard, an international law firm with offices across the region. Based in the Middle East, he has extensive experience in arbitration and cross-border litigation.  He often advises clients on cybercrime-related matters and cyber liability insurance policies.
