We counsel businesses and individuals in the rapidly emerging areas of privacy and data security.
Our attorneys can bring or defend claims when sensitive private images, recordings or other information are revealed by others. Social media, apps and other user‑friendly services have made it extremely easy to share such materials, and also much more difficult to remove them.
We are also ready to assist with the creation or review of formal policies, practices and other safeguards to help protect business and private information from unauthorized access or misuse, such as phishing, spoofing, ransomware, hacking and other practices designed to gain unauthorized, and often secret access to your electronic systems, databases and other private sensitive information. We can help your business comply with specific federal laws (e.g. children’s privacy), as well as the creation of appropriate policies for regulated industries where highly specific practices and compliance are required when working with sensitive personally identifiable private information.
All businesses should be actively planning to minimize the potentially devastating damages from a data breach. Our attorneys can help you proactively anticipate and develop responses and backup plans to restore normal operations as quickly as possible in the event of a breach.
