Cyber Law Attorneys
The risk of neglecting cybersecurity and data privacy in your organization could cost you millions and leave your business and employees vulnerable to cyberattacks. Our team of highly skilled attorneys work with organizations in health care, education, financial services and other industries to minimize risks of cyberattacks and to stay in compliance with local, national and international privacy laws and regulations.
In May 2018, the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) changed the rules for the international community of digital economies. The GDPR’s impact on United States markets and industries is far and wide for those schools and companies that enroll, employ, do business with or gather and store data from a citizen of an EU country and require reviews of policies and procedures as a starting point.
The evolving landscape of cybersecurity issues like breaches, hacking, phishing and other types of attacks are forcing organizations to prioritize cybersecurity as part of their business strategy. The reality of “big data” and expansion of the interconnectedness of devices and information – the Internet of Things (IoT) – and emerging advances in technology make organizations vulnerable to threats.
These are unprecedented challenges and it is more important than ever before to stay informed about the most current developments in cybersecurity and to have the right systems, policies and procedures in place to reduce exposure to harmful breaches of personal information or theft of proprietary business data.
