Data Security and Privacy

Privacy, data usage and security issues are a constant and complex concern of every organization. Protecting digital information from ever-changing threats is serious, not only for regulated industries such as health care and financial services, but also for any business that receives, uses or stores personally identifiable and other protected or proprietary information.

We advise clients on all aspects of privacy and data security, including ransomware. We counsel clients who have suffered a data security breach to help the client recover as quickly and completely as possible and to ensure response plans meet all applicable legal requirements to minimize exposure to litigation and regulatory actions. Our team works to implement measures to mitigate risk before a breach occurs, including, by way of example, creation of privacy and information usage compliance programs, data security policies and development of response team plans in the event of a data breach.

We take a multi-disciplinary approach, staffing our Data Security and Privacy team with members from multiple practice areas of our Firm to cover the full array of issues present in these matters, including:

  • Data Breach/Ransomware Investigation, Response and Notification
  • Data Breach Response Plans/Written Information Security Programs
  • Privacy and Data Security/HIPAA Assessments and Reviews
  • Privacy Compliance
  • Risk Management
  • Litigation and Regulatory Actions
  • Vendor and Business Partner Contracts
