Data Security and Privacy

Overview

Companies now recognize the immense opportunities—and responsibilities—of  data in today’s always-connected world. We partner with you in maintaining the trust of customers, investors and business partners.

Each year, there are more than 1.5 million cyber-attacks on U.S. businesses. Victims include some of the biggest names in American business, as well as smaller businesses in every industry. Perhaps more importantly, everyday access to data can result in losses even without an attack: devices can be lost or stolen, for example. Every data incident has the potential to become a legal matter and can result in financial losses, litigation and erosion of investor and customer confidence. We advise clients on compliance with government regulations, internal assessment and planning, and response to incidents and litigation.

Companies with access to valuable data are finding that compliance with federal and state privacy laws is becoming increasingly complex. The exposure can be significant for violations. We provide industry-specific guidance in health care, financial services, consumer marketing, telecommunications and other segments. We also counsel on use of online and "cloud-based" networking capabilities and the specific risks they can present. 

Most companies benefit from a cross-functional team, including legal counsel, IT professionals and the C-suite executives, that addresses risk management and best practices in order to limit exposure. Our breadth of experience is the perfect complement to your internal cross-funded team. Likewise, we have assembled a multi-disciplinary team of attorneys who work with clients to manage risks in advance of any problems, and respond quickly if an incident occurs.
