Cybersecurity and the protection of privacy is a critical imperative for all businesses and organizations. One breach can significantly impact the reputation a company spent decades building. The attorneys in our Cybersecurity & Privacy work with our clients to ensure they have policies in place to safeguard against unintentional disclosure and cyber-attacks as well as robust response plans should an incident arise. In the event of a lawsuit as a result of a breach, our experienced litigation team will aggressively pursue the appropriate legal strategy to protect our clients’ business and legal interests.

Areas of Focus

Cyber-Protection and Planning

Hodgson Russ attorneys work with our clients to develop comprehensive cyber-protection plans with the following key objectives:

  • Complying with privacy- and breach-notification laws, including Dodd-Frank, Gramm Leach Bliley, the EU Privacy Directive, and state laws
  • Responding to the National Institute of Standards & Technology's (NIST's) Cybersecurity Framework, released in February 2014
  • Developing and implementing a clear framework for incident response
  • Ensuring the organization is covered by adequate cyber-liability insurance, including first-party coverage for data-breach costs and third-party coverage for lawsuits

Data Breach Remediation and Response Services

We also work with clients to ensure they comply with all applicable breach-notification laws, both national and international. Our attorneys will also guide you through any inquiries and investigations by the FTC, SEC, and other state and federal regulatory authorities.
