Colonnade Communications is a Public Relations and Crisis Communications firm that was founded with privacy and data security as a core agency focus. We have extensive experience helping organizations prepare for and respond to cybersecurity and other data-related communications challenges. We help clients navigate today’s challenging environment of evolving public expectations surrounding data security – including striking the right balance when responding to often competing demands for speed, accuracy, transparency, and confidentiality. We do so by working in close coordination with our clients’ legal counsel and with multidisciplinary teams from within client organizations. We work to protect client business interests, relationships and reputation by providing insight, experience, and teamwork, while prioritizing responsiveness and confidentiality. We have teamed on incident responses with legal experts at a number of the nation’s top privacy and data security law practices, as well as leading cybersecurity and data forensics investigative firms. We also have been engaged by numerous underwriters of cyber insurance to help protect the interests of their policyholders. Our team has responded to data loss and data exposure assignments across the threat spectrum, including incidents resulting from malware and phishing attacks, card skimmers and point-of-sale intrusions, physical theft of equipment and records, insider misuse, denial of service, ransomware, and other criminal acts and human errors.
