Burr & Forman helps clients navigate through the complex cyber landscape with strategies designed to assess current risks, develop a corrective action plan, implement best practices, and provide immediate and appropriate responses to a cybersecurity breach.
We know that cyberattacks and data loss affect a number of industries, including health care, finance, education, manufacturing, technology, retail services, hospitality, insurance, transportation and government. Our attorneys assist clients in nearly all aspects of cybersecurity law, including technology infrastructure assessment and audits, data breach prevention, compliance with best practices, regulatory compliance, and data breach response notification and reporting. In addition to our attorneys, our cybersecurity team includes information technology personnel who are Certified Information Systems Security Professionals (CISSP) and are equipped to handle security risks, operations, assessment, and testing.
We are also experienced in representing financial institutions and other businesses in matters related to unauthorized wire transfers and “phishing” attacks conducted by cybercriminals. We represent health care clients in matters involving critical data security issues, including policy development, regulatory compliance, and litigation involving breach and non-compliance. We assist technology service providers in determining security requirements and developing policies and procedures to meet the requirements of their clients. Our team also provides counsel and assistance in corporate transactions that involve critical cybersecurity components.
