Pannone Lopes Devereaux & O’Gara and Citrin Cooperman Expand Cybersecurity Podcast Series and Resource Library for Businesses to Help Reduce the Risk and Cost of Cyber Threats

Pannone Lopes Devereaux & O’Gara LLC (PLDO) and Citrin Cooperman, a full-service assurance, tax and business advisory firm, announce the expansion of their original series of cybersecurity podcasts, “Cyber Crooks and Crime,” with two new episodes on best practice tools and techniques to help businesses reduce the risk of data breaches and proactively protect and secure their digital environments against cyberattacks. The podcast interviews feature PLDO Partner Brian J. Lamoureux, a leading voice and frequent commentator on social media and digital law and cybersecurity legal issues, and Kevin Ricci, CISA, CRISC, MCSE, QSA, a leader in the cybersecurity practice at Citrin Cooperman. In addition to the podcasts, Attorney Lamoureux and Mr. Ricci added to the website’s cybersecurity resource library with their co-authored article, Devise A Plan Before A Data Breach, which was recently published in Providence Business News.

The new podcasts describe the first line of defense for companies to have in their arsenal against cyberattacks, what the legal consequences may be when faced with a cyberattack, why having cyber insurance can save money and reputational damage should an incident occur, and the value-added benefits gained when a business outsources cybersecurity management to properly credentialed industry experts. These podcasts add to the growing resources PLDO and Citrin Cooperman have created for businesses to stay informed and up-to-date on protective measures to consider in order to safeguard their customers, employees and brand against cyber crime.
