Cybersecurity

    We help clients prevent, respond to and defend against cyber threats. 

    On the front end, we help our clients minimize the risk of data compromise or a cyber incident. And in the event of a breach, we have a strong team to protect and defend companies who have experienced a cyberattack. 

    Our team has specific experience in the following areas:

    • Data breach response
    • Counterparty review and assessment
    • Vendor due diligence
    • Review of information security plans
    • Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance
    • Employee handbook provisions
    • Financial class action defense
    • HIPAA compliance issues

    Areas of Focus

    Prevention

    We identify areas of need by analyzing the strength of existing compliance systems, technical controls and procedures. From there, we create policies and procedures, implement them and conduct training to prevent a breach. 

    Compliance Advice

    We monitor legislation, regulations and court decisions to ensure that our clients abide by the latest rules. And because hackers tend to be steps ahead of regulators, we stress the importance of understanding all legal facets of online security, even before regulators take action.

    Crisis Response

    If private information becomes unexpectedly compromised, we respond effectively and rapidly to retain resources and recover lost information. We stand with our clients, walking them through a checklist of actions and considerations to lessen the impact and increase resiliency. Should the media get involved, we facilitate the proper partnerships and assist in crafting a public relations strategy.

    Litigation Defense

    In the event of cybersecurity-related litigation, we seek to gain control from the start. We are committed to delivering results while conserving our clients’ resources and protecting their most important relationships. In particular, our class action team devises timely and effective defense strategies with the goal of early dismissal.
