Cybersecurity and Privacy

Intro

Corporations and other organizations encounter privacy and data security law issues in most aspects of their operations, from human resources to marketing and customer service. Every day, organizations collect information about employees, customers, potential customers and business partners. This data is subject to increasingly more stringent privacy requirements by federal and state law, as well as by contract.

Our Data Solutions group helps organizations identify information that must be protected and assists in developing the necessary policies and procedures. If an organization needs to share personally identifiable or other sensitive data with others, we can provide the appropriate contracts. In the context of litigation and other requests for access to data, we help companies evaluate when information can be disclosed; we also have the technology and staffing to provide assistance with redacting confidential data prior to producing documents.

Our attorneys work as a team and have supported a variety of clients across a broad array of industries to meet their data privacy goals and responsibilities. Our clients include businesses of all sizes in all fields, including:
 
  • Automotive
  • Retailers
  • Manufacturers
  • Health Care and Life Science Services
  • Insurance
  • Higher Education
  • Financial Services
  • Government Contractors

Our attorneys help organizations comply with the myriad of state, federal and international laws that contain privacy provisions, including:
 
  • The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
  • Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
  • The U.S.-E.U Privacy Shield and other laws that govern the transmission of private data across international borders.
  • The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)


Data Breach Guidance and Response

Digital technology has given organizations the ability to collect and store large amounts of personally identifiable information and other private data, but it’s also made them targets for hackers, data miners and government agencies that police data breaches. Our Data Solutions Group has the experience and expertise necessary to help organizations of all sizes develop and implement breach notification policies, investigate breaches and respond quickly to the theft or improper release of personal data. We also help organizations with insurance issues relating to breaches—when trying to obtain such coverage and in the event of a breach.
 
Whether a breach involves one individual or more than a million, we have the resources to help organizations evaluate their legal obligations and, when necessary, provide notification that meets applicable legal requirements.
