Burr & Forman Launches Microsite and Enhances Cybersecurity & Data Privacy Team Across The Southeast
Burr & Forman LLP is pleased to announce the launch of BurrCyber.com as a resource center for businesses and their insurance carriers to address the increasing risks, frequency, and cost posed by cybersecurity attacks, the management of personal data, and compliance with evolving data breach notification and data privacy laws – nationally and internationally. The new site launch coincides with the growth of Burr & Forman’s Cybersecurity & Data Privacy team with additional attorneys to expand its experience and resources. The multidisciplinary team of 15 attorneys around the Southeast is led by co-chairs India Vincent and Elizabeth Shirley, both of whom hold certifications as Certified Information Privacy Professionals in the United States (CIPP/US).
“With the increase in cybersecurity attacks, the rising dependence on digital connectivity for businesses, and the increased collection, use and retention of personal information, this site and the newly expanded team marks our commitment to helping clients navigate the uncertainties of business in the digital age,” Shirley said.
“‘Response Matters’ is the team’s motto as we work to prepare our clients to successfully maneuver through a cyber-incident, by guiding our clients to develop an effective breach response plan based on appropriate data privacy and security policies and procedures. Our experienced team of attorneys works with clients to appropriately mitigate their risks in a manner that can be maintained long term,” Vincent added.
In addition to an Insights page to provide ongoing guidance and updates, the website details considerations for five pillars of cybersecurity protection along with data privacy, including Breach Response; Incidence Preparedness; Data Privacy Compliance; Cyber Insurance Coverage; and Impacted Industries, which encompass special considerations for businesses in the financial services, health care, and manufacturing sectors.
The Cybersecurity & Data Privacy team includes attorneys with a range of practice specialties to address the unique set of circumstances that businesses face, with additional resources offered by the firm’s Chief Security Officer.
