DLA Piper put out a piece in August 2021 entitled “Cybersecurity considerations for executives and boards of directors: How recent cyberattack trends and developments inform strategies for reducing cyber-risk”.  The piece states, among other things:

“As the costs and sophistication of cyberattacks continue to rise, and as businesses continue to seek ways to streamline operations in response to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, organizations should continue to monitor cyberattack trends and develop data governance programs.  Other cyber-risk management strategies include reviewing organizational controls, developing and improving incident response plans, conducting internal and external security assessments, and training employees on incident prevention and response. ”
