Data Breach Response


OUR Practice
Data security is of paramount importance in the modern age. Customers, industry standards, laws, regulations and good business practice demand that today’s companies guard data like never before. And even with state-of-the-art protections and protocols in place, human error and evolving technology leave secure systems vulnerable to attack.

What happens when a data breach occurs? What should be done to assess the breach, mitigate potential damages and comply with laws? 

Questions like these strike fear into the hearts of businesses and nonprofits today — and for good reason. An organization that has suffered a data breach could be facing a number of serious consequences — from data leakage or deletion, reporting obligations, regulatory fines or penalties, and lawsuits to reputational harm and loss of critical business-sensitive data.
