Cybersecurity & Privacy

Barrett McNagny’s Cybersecurity & Privacy attorneys work with companies before, during and after a data breach. Our proactive approach begins by engaging with the client to discuss practical solutions to manage and protect a business’ information to reduce the probability of a breach. Working across company departments from human resources to marketing and information technology, our attorneys work to protect the company and its valuable information by:

  • Reviewing policies and data storage plans
  • Evaluating equipment usage and disposal policies
  • Creating response plans and procedures in the event of a breach
  • Provide guidance on complying with data breach notifications laws
  • Review relevant insurance policies to ensure protection in the event of a cybersecurity breach

Addressing a Security Breach

If a breach does occur, our seasoned attorneys work with your company personnel to execute the response plan and handle correspondence to all parties involved. As a result of a breach, if a lawsuit is filed, our attorneys assist in the litigation process, help manage any contractual liabilities, and preserve evidence for the defense of the lawsuit. We are experienced in defending first and third party claims for insurance carriers and clients for data breaches, viruses, malware, breach of privacy and other cyber-related claims.

A breach does not always happen from an outside hack. Sometimes, breaches occur internally due to the negligence (or intentional act) of an employee, or through the action of an IT vendor. If this happens, a company may have vicarious liability for its employee’s and/or vendor’s actions. Our attorneys are ready to assist by handling internal investigations, counseling and assisting with crisis management efforts, and preparing for and spearheading legal action on behalf of a company.

Disaster Recovery Plan and Business Continuity Plan

Aside from cybersecurity breaches, it is vital that a company have a Disaster Recovery Plan and Business Continuity Plan in place. Our team can create customized plans to fit business and industry needs. In the technological world in which we live it is practically inevitable that a data breach will happen. Taking action today to plan and protect your company’s most valuable assets – its data and information – will help ensure your business can sustain an attack and recover as quickly as possible.
