Cybersecurity & Data Privacy

The meteoric rise of the Internet worldwide has altered traditional legal concepts and created new ones in the fields of cybersecurity, data privacy and intellectual property. Achieving compliance with the latest laws, regulations and industry standards is vital to insulate your business from liability. Designing and implementing plans that address cybersecurity vulnerabilities, data breaches, incident response and trade secret protection will position your company for continuity of operations in the face of emerging cyber-threats.

Planning also helps you minimize exposure to governmental investigations and enforcement actions, generate trust among valued customers, employees and supply chain partners, and lays the groundwork for a smooth and profitable exit strategy. Reviewing business insurance policies for cybersecurity and data privacy coverage is another important component of your company’s information security profile. If your business offers a cybersecurity service or product, a thorough understanding of the legal, regulatory and standards landscape is necessary to position for marketplace success.
