We are encountering some instances of the below error, looks like some missing null checks on your behalf in the AddHandlerToCache method

Origin: LogEventBeforeSave - Action: Parsing - Category: Application - ExceptionType: NullReferenceException - Description: Processed data: [some][g:GROUP582]; Default type: All. - StackTrace: 2021-04-06 20:50:25.432: Processed data: [some][g:GROUP582]; Default type: All..

What version...?

The current code base contains this:

private static void AddHandlerToCache(ProductsAndGroupsHandler handler, string handlerData)
            string key = string.Format("{0}_{1}", Common.Context.LanguageID, handlerData);
            if (CachedHandlers is null || CachedHandlers.ContainsKey(key))

            CachedHandlers.Add(key, handler);

So it should not happen (unless there is a threading issue...!)
