Today, cybersecurity is an “above the fold” issue, and the increasingly intricate fabric of global privacy, security and data breach notification laws and regulations makes compliance for any organization—especially a multinational one—difficult to manage.
Alston & Bird’s Cybersecurity Preparedness & Response (CPR) Team has helped companies large and small, international and domestic, and operating in a wide array of industries, both regulated and unregulated, respond to data breaches. We bring this experience to bear in helping companies proactively prepare to respond to security incidents and otherwise manage cybersecurity risks. Our attorneys have handled incidents of all sizes, from state-sponsored attacks and sophisticated cyber attacks by organized criminal groups (triggering data breach laws and regulations in over 50 countries) to an employee accidentally sending an email with personal information outside the company (potentially triggering a single state breach notification law). In essence—you name it, we’ve seen it (and responded to it).
