Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Law

“Our network has been hacked!” This all-too-common phrase can rock a business to its core. And unfortunately, regardless of what technological protections you have in place, no system is impervious to a breach. But how did it happen? What did they get? Is your customer data safe? What about your financials? Should you tell someone? What do you do next? Could you be held liable?

All of these questions (and more) should come to mind in the event that a data breach does occur. But through careful planning, preparation, and foresight, you can lend strength and confidence to an incident response. And that’s where we come in…

If you are experiencing an ongoing breach or your systems have recently been compromised, Kerr Russell’s Cybersecurity and Data Privacy professionals can help guide you through the incident response process. Just as critically, though, if your systems are currently operating normally, we can help make sure you are compliant with all local, state, federal, and international regulations; make sure your cybersecurity policies and procedures are appropriate for your business needs; and assist you with creating of a customized incident response plan. Regardless of size, industry, or location, we are here to make sure your business is prepared to address all of your cybersecurity and data privacy needs.
