People trust your company with information every day. However, cyber-attacks and data breaches pose a persistent risk to businesses in the form of regulatory actions, privacy class action litigation, and loss of good will. The key to mitigating liability is pro-active planning with a thorough understanding of your legal duties and potential exposure. Legal counsel plays a key part in helping an organization understand its potential liability, draft cyber-security plans that will mitigate such liability, ensure third party contracts contemplate data breach protection, and responding timely to a data breach.
