Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig’s Cybersecurity Solutions team understands that the privacy of personally identifiable information is an increasingly sensitive and important issue across industries, as the labyrinth of state, federal and international privacy, data protection and security laws with which businesses must contend grows ever more complex. It is increasingly becoming the rule that entities engaged in the collection, use or disclosure of personally identifiable information will be required by law to protect the privacy and security of that information. Cyber threats to sensitive data are immediate and real, as massive data breaches are making headlines with alarming frequency.
According to a recent article in Forbes Magazine, there were 2,216 data breaches and more than 53,000 Cybersecurity incidents reported in 65 countries in the 12 months ending in March 2018 (Press, Gil. “60 Cybersecurity Predictions For 2019.” Forbes, Forbes Magazine, 22 Feb. 2019). There is no double that businesses today need to be prepared. Being prepared means not only protecting your business again a cyber incident, but also preventing them from happening in the first place.
In 2019 and beyond, security measures considered reasonable and prudent in the past no longer meet expectations. Public disclosure of a cybersecurity breach at a company is often quickly followed by government investigations, congressional attention, customer and other stakeholder inquiries, and lawsuits, particularly in the United States.
In response to the unique needs of businesses and individuals who are navigating the myriad of existing and emerging security threats, Dunlap, Bennett & Ludwig provides invaluable legal and technical advice to proactively protect our clients from cybersecurity incidents and data breaches and guide them through the complicated process of responding to an incident when it when it occurs.
