Data Breach Incident Response
When it comes to responding to data breaches, there is no substitute for experience. Our Data, Privacy & Cybersecurity team collectively has spent dozens of years helping clients prepare for, respond to and litigate data breaches. As time goes on, hackers have gotten more sophisticated, but so have we. We know that our clients want to get back to business safely and securely as quickly as possible, and we counsel with an eye toward reducing the likelihood of litigation. Whether it is phishing, ransomware, or inadvertent disclosure, our team has handled virtually all types of breaches across diverse industries including healthcare, financial services, retailers, public companies, non-profits, and small to mid-size organizations.
Because timing is critical when a breach occurs, our dedicated Data Breach Hotline allows clients to reach us around the clock, 24/7. Our team is just a phone call away.
