Our technology-driven world is generating new data and information at unimaginable rates—and at an intensity that will only continue to grow. As companies and individuals invent new and innovative ways of turning data into commercial successes and social advancements, new perils also emerge. When you are faced with a security concern, we put our extensive experience in handling sensitive data and privacy matters to work for you.
We work with businesses large and small through all aspects of data privacy and security—from assessing and managing risk to addressing cybersecurity concerns before and after an incident. You must act decisively when an incident occurs, which is why our team is there at a moment’s notice to offer practical solutions that contain risks before they spiral out of control.
Data breaches pose particularly immense concerns, particularly in industries that handle personally- identifiable information (PII) like banking, healthcare and retail. We help you analyze the probability and impact of breach scenarios, develop and implement incident response policies, lead investigations when a breach occurs and handle dispute resolution with affected parties and regulators after the incident.
We support you in your efforts to comply with an ever-expanding universe of privacy and data security regulations. We help craft the policies and practices that address your data compliance risks and obligations and ensure proper privacy and security protections are built into your employment and commercial relationships. Our attorneys will guide you in determining exactly how different regimes apply to you, including HIPAA, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI), the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks, EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
We understand the significance data has on the success of emerging technology businesses and the risks it brings to the table. When a transaction is in the works, it is particularly crucial to conduct a data privacy and security assessment as part of the due diligence process. We counsel you regarding data protection requirements, indemnification and risk allocation. We also assist you with identifying, auditing and partnering with existing counterparties and business partners to ensure data security and risk management processes do not hamper the deal.
Data knows no borders, yet privacy laws and regulations vary drastically around the world. Our counsel extends across U.S. state and international lines to help you assess and comply with the privacy and related regulatory regimes that apply to you.
