In the United States, the average data security breach goes unseen for 300 days. When a breach is finally noticed, it often is far too late to contain the damage. How then, does a company prevent such loss? What indicators are missed during that 10-month window of vulnerability? What does an adequate response look like? What learnings can be gained from a breach to prevent future lapses?

Our attorneys guide clients through highly effective and proactive breach response planning. We employ a holistic approach to ensuring your business not only reacts swiftly and effectively but also has the tools in place to prevent and detect potential gaps in your data security systems.
