Ken Dort, intellectual property partner in Chicago, was quoted in Business Insurance regarding the Trump administration’s new policies for notifying private companies about their cybersecurity flaws. In “Rule Clarifies, Speeds Up Government Info to Firms on Cyber Security Flaws,” Ken addresses a policy released by the U.S. government, “Vulnerabilities Equities Policy and Process for the United States Government.” The policy provides an outline of factors to consider when deciding whether to release cybersecurity breach information and states that vulnerabilities should be disclosed within seven days.

Ken notes the new policy will permit faster release of information and “give private entities essentially enough time to react and prevent bad things from happening,” such as the WannaCry attack earlier this year.
