Breach Response

All fifty states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, some federal agencies, and the European Union (along with a number of other foreign jurisdictions and agencies) now require that affected individuals (and, in some cases, government agencies and the news media) be notified when their personal information is impacted by an information security breach. Unfortunately, the result is often a lawsuit or a government enforcement action against the organization that experienced the breach. Consequently, a security breach can temporarily derail your business, undermining customer, employee, management, and shareholder confidence.

Managing these incidents appropriately is crucial to mitigating their impact and minimizing the likelihood of lawsuits and government enforcement actions.

We assist our clients in preventing, preparing for, and responding to actual and suspected information security breaches.
