CYBERSECURITY

The prospect of enhanced data privacy regulation at the federal level, coupled with extensive media coverage of recent high-profile cyber-attacks and security breaches, have led many organizations in both the public and private sectors to focus increased attention on cybersecurity. The heightened concern is justified: the consequences of failing to appropriately mitigate cyber vulnerabilities can be devastating.

Cybersecurity threats continue to expand and change with increasingly sophisticated attackers (and in some cases, nation states) targeting financial and healthcare systems, industrial control systems and other parts of critical infrastructure.

We understand the challenges in assessing and identifying cybersecurity risks, and can help clients develop strategies to address them. Our attorneys have long advised clients on legal issues related to privacy protection, the prevention and mitigation of data breaches, and general enterprise security. The members of our Washington, D.C.-based office are especially well-positioned to help organizations understand and influence legislative and regulatory developments in this emerging area.
