Data Privacy Practice.

Baird Holm has the experience, the tools, and the software to conduct the necessary investigation to determine the extent of the incident, the data accessed or acquired, and whether notification to affected individuals is legally required.  We have independently conducted hundreds of breach investigations and we have worked with other law firms and vast array of forensics investigators.

Our Privacy and Data Protection attorneys have been trusted with managing a diverse array of data privacy and security needs. Our team has deep expertise in handling regulated data and personal information throughout its information life cycle, including assisting clients with privacy and security programs and incident response plans. Our attorneys are well versed in variety of regulatory regimes applicable to an organization’s information, including HIPAA, GLBA, PCI-DSS, COPPA, GDPR, CCPA/CPRA, as well as the emerging comprehensive state data privacy regimes. We assess an organization’s regulatory requirements and evaluate its data management practices to deliver tailored legal insight and recommendations for data security and privacy compliance.
