Cyber Security and Data Privacy Practice Group
Primerus has organized a group of lawyers who provide legal consultation, at various degrees, in Cyber Security, Data Protection and Privacy Law.
Today, as more sensitive and critical information and data is collected, stored, used, and disclosed electronically, the risks have heightened for any organization. Every company in virtually every industry has cyber security and privacy concerns, including:
- Cyber Attacks and Data Breaches. Data breaches of organizations of all sizes are a recurring headline in major news sources and a focus global concern.
- Data Security. The growth of “hacking” incidents and the theft of sensitive and personal information and intellectual property, including information we are entrusted to keep safe for others, require affirmative steps to meet increasing legal and regulatory information safeguard requirements.
- Regulation and Compliance. We face increasingly overlapping systems of international, federal, and state statutes, administrative regulations, common law, and evolving cybersecurity and privacy industry standards governing how data is collected, used, stored, and shared. Together, these present new compliance challenges as well as increased risks of potential civil and regulatory liability, financial penalties, and reputational harm.
- eDiscovery. How we collect, use, and transfer data during litigation and “eDiscovery” is increasingly regulated by the courts during disputes, and the ability to collect from countries in regions such as the European Union is increasingly complex and fraught with the peril of conflicts with US litigation discovery obligations.
