The frequency and sophistication of data breaches and data losses have accelerated dramatically in the last decade. Although there is seemingly no way to predict an attack, the reality is that businesses are constantly under siege, faced with multiple threat vectors and bad actors inside and outside the company. Minimizing the potential for a breach is an essential component of risk management and good practice. We help our clients create data breach protocols that adhere to applicable industry, state, and federal regulations as well as the GDPR.
In the unfortunate event of a breach, we can either help existing clients carry out the existing incident response plan or assist new clients with managing the substantial legal and regulatory requirements for post-breach action. In particular, we focus on breach notification requirements, responding to regulatory inquiries, and determination of potential legal remedies against third parties, if necessary.
