Cybersecurity & Data Privacy

Overview

Cybersecurity is one of the top issues keeping decision-makers up at night. Executives and attorneys at companies large and small can’t miss the headlines: Russian hacking, Target data breach, fingerprints stolen from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. Not only do organizations need to worry about the security of client and employee data, they also have to follow constantly changing regulations.

It is essential to have a game plan before anything happens. Our Cybersecurity & Data Privacy team can walk you through the detailed policies you need and help train your employees about them. Our attorneys can develop a cybersecurity program that assists your company in preparing for – and responding to – a data breach based on the best practices the U.S. Justice Department, regulators and industry groups recommend. We can also help you navigate SEC disclosure requirements on cybersecurity readiness. As part of that front-end work, we can examine whether you need cybersecurity insurance and, if so, which coverage would be adequate for the types of breaches that may occur.

When a data breach does happen, we are there from start to finish, complying with federal and state regulations and defending lawsuits from consumers and others. Our litigation team can protect and defend against both regulator and civil claims. As a full-service law firm, we are uniquely positioned to understand your cybersecurity challenges in the broader context of your overall legal needs.
