Data Security and Privacy
Managing information has become an increasingly complex and a multi-faceted problem for all companies. Over 50 countries now have their own data privacy laws regulating how the collection, use and disclosure of private information can be utilized. This growing problem is anticipated to cost companies across the globe over $330 billion dollars.
Alpert, Barr & Grant’s Privacy and Data Security practice provides the following full-range of services to assist companies:
Pre-litigation Counseling. We advise clients in a wide range of industries on data security and privacy issues that arise in transactional, regulatory, litigation-related and other advisory contexts. While our team includes skilled litigators who repeatedly win judgments in favor of our clients, we also recognize that sometimes avoiding litigation can be the most desirable outcome for a particular client in light of the client’s particular interests and circumstances.
Privacy Audits. In a cost effective manner, we will analyze a client’s current practices and procedures to determine whether the client is engaging in the best practices to protect its privacy and the privacy of its clients or customers.
Data Security Breach Prevention and Response. We engage with clients in proactive planning to reduce the risk and consequences of security breaches, and we have extensive experience in helping clients investigate and address security breaches when they do occur.
Cyber Insurance. We counsel clients on planning and use of insurance for the data protection space. Specifically, our firm’s experience in guiding companies large and small through the process of obtaining coverage for online perils is unparalleled. So too is the track record of our Insurance Recovery and Advisory practice, an integral element of the Privacy, Data Security and Information Use group, in winning battles with insurers over cyber coverage.
