Cyber Security & Data Protection Group
Headlines about cyber hacking attacks and security and data privacy breaches abound, renewing public focus on the vulnerabilities of IT security and the profile of cybercriminals. The cost of these attacks to the global economy is estimated to exceed $1.5 trillion.
Our Cyber Security & Data Protection Group, experienced in developing and implementing data breach response programs, is prepared to assist clients with the coordination of criminal and civil responses following a data breach. Businesses that possess personally identifiable information have numerous obligations and responsibilities under state, federal, and – in some cases – international law. Businesses have a responsibility to shareholders, employees, and customers to safeguard proprietary, confidential, and trade-secret information. Our local access to federal and state authorities and a global alliance of legal and technical professionals enable our team to address the most urgent of client needs.
In addition to its data breach (i.e., hacking) response capabilities and offerings, the Cyber Security & Data Protection Group assists clients in understanding and complying with the laws and standards that regulate the collection, use, sharing, and protection of personal data. Regardless of their size, businesses must comply with the laws that pertain to their possession or ownership of consumer or employee data.
We understand how information-use business models and how information flow generates revenue for our clients. Our lawyers have extensive experience in technology, banking and finance, consumer protection, employment, international law, intellectual property, health care, and litigation. In addition, our lawyers have hands-on business experience that enables us to provide strategic business consulting on all aspects of information policy, including privacy, information security, and records management.
We play an important role in the development of public policy regarding the future regulation of cyber issues and are recognized as authorities in the field. For example, we have offered commentary on U.S. federal legislation, lectured internationally, written comprehensive, scholarly articles on cyber topics, and been quoted in media reports addressing cyber issues. In addition, the group chair has been designated as a Fulbright Specialist in the area of how technology impacts the law, created and teaches an innovative law school course on the topic, and founded and contributes to a blog that monitors cyber and data privacy initiatives and policies that emanate from The Office of the President of the United States, eWhite House Watch.
