Practical legal risk management and compliance guidance helps organizations navigate the challenges inherent to regulated and sensitive data.
In today’s economy, connections drive business. Companies rely on employees, customers, supply chain partners, service providers, and other businesses, who can be among their biggest data privacy and information security liabilities.
Before data incidents arise, we help clients develop defensible data security through business reviews and risk assessments. Our specialized technical team interprets data protection requirements, guidelines, and frameworks to recommend improvements to prevent, detect, and respond to data breaches. If litigation or enforcement actions result from a breach, we provide experienced, vigorous defense.
Our privacy and security team also includes experienced technology and commercial transactions lawyers who assist with vendor and service provider diligence and oversight, incorporation of privacy and security requirements into transactions, and other forms of transaction risk management.
We counsel clients on federal and state laws that regulate data security practices, including the collection, use, and handling of personal, sensitive, and critical business information. We also advise on compliance considerations, ranging from international to local laws, industry standards, consensus frameworks, and other laws regulating the collection, use, and handling of data.
