Cybersecurity

Our Cybersecurity Team understands the legal, business, and reputational risks associated with evolving privacy and data-protection laws. We offer a full spectrum of services designed to identify, manage, and minimize our clients' exposure to cyber risks.

Overview

Cyber Risk

In this digital age, companies thrive on collecting, using, and sharing data. Safeguarding that information is essential—not only to compete in the marketplace, but to comply with ever-increasing layers of state, federal, and international laws governing data and consumer protection. These laws govern every major industry, including banking, energy, health care, hospitality, manufacturing, and real estate.

Failure to comply is increasingly costly; businesses incur billions in incident-response, investigation, and litigation costs every year. And the problem continues to grow.

Our Cybersecurity Team understands the legal, business, and reputational risks associated with evolving privacy and data-protection laws. We offer a full spectrum of services designed to identify, manage, and minimize our clients’ exposure to cyber risks.

As a full-service team of corporate, health care, and trial attorneys, we have extensive experience assisting clients in the following cybersecurity areas:

Compliance

Before any breach or cyber incident ever occurs, we counsel our clients on how best to protect themselves and comply with evolving state, federal, and international laws governing computer and data security. We also draft cyber policies, data-breach response plans, and information-security plans as required by law, contract, and industry standards.

Risk Management

We review and draft data-security, indemnification, and insurance provisions for M&As and other business contracts to ensure appropriate risk transfer. We work with our clients to evaluate their insurance needs, identify any coverage gaps, and maximize their protection for cyber incidents. We also offer in-person or virtual training on best practices.

Incident Response

We serve as rapid-response “breach coaches,” counseling clients through all legal aspects of the investigation, mitigation, and, if necessary, the disclosure of a breach or other cyber incident.

Investigations and Litigation

We represent our clients in regulatory investigations and other disputes involving data, security, and other cyber incidents. We employ a proactive approach, helping clients avoid or limit regulatory fines, penalties, and other exposure.
