Our Data Privacy & Cybersecurity Practice Group advises clients in high stress data breach situations, including ransomware, business email compromise, cyber extortion, hacking, social engineering, and emerging threats. Our team is interdisciplinary, consisting of litigators, cybersecurity experts, and technology-savvy healthcare, corporate, insurance, and banking attorneys (many with CIPP certifications, including CIPP/US, CIPP/E, and CIPM). Our collaborative and wholistic approach means you get the very best of our combined experience while we focus on reducing the total impact of a security incident on your reputation and business operations.

Our team includes the firm’s Chief Information Security Officer, a former privacy consultant, a former computer programmer, and decades of combined experience in digital forensics, cyber-incident response, ethical hacking, and website security. We have worked with nearly every top forensic provider in the data breach industry.

In addition to incident response capabilities, we also offer comprehensive breach-prevention services, including compliance counseling, information security program governance and policies, tabletop exercises, coordinated data security audits, and cybersecurity due diligence in investments and M&A.

Our Data Privacy & Cybersecurity Practice Group prides itself on staying ahead of the ever-changing risk landscape, including the latest in data breach litigation, cyber-threat actors, attack techniques, and emerging data privacy and cybersecurity laws.
