The attorneys in our Data Security, Privacy & Technology practice group take a proactive approach by working with clients to ensure compliance with data security and privacy laws and to prepare for data breaches before they occur. Studies routinely show that organizations with strong security postures and a written data breach response plan in place beforehand experience less interruption and have lower costs when responding to a data breach. In addition, various laws and regulations require some organizations to implement data security and privacy policies and procedures, to have third-party vendors agree to certain contractual provisions, and to train their staff on data security and privacy issues.
Our team works with clients to develop the right policies and procedures, and to conduct the right training, to ensure legal compliance and protect them in these situations. Our work in this area includes advice and counseling on legal compliance; review and preparation of written policies and procedures, including incident response plans; execution of table top exercises; presentation of workforce training; and drafting and negotiation of vendor contracts. As part of our services in this area, we have developed the FMG Cyber Toolkit, which is a package of essential policies and procedures and training exercises designed to provide your organization with the framework needed to prepare for and respond to a data breach.
