FRA Founding Partner Toby Duthie and Partner Trevor Wiles recently spoke at American Bar Association’s White Collar Crime conference in London, sponsored by FRA, to discuss incident response readiness and how organizations should prepare to effectively adapt to the many legal and business workflow issues that may arise.
