Privacy & Cybersecurity

Into the Breach

Businesses face increasingly sophisticated cyber threats and aggressive regulatory enforcement. Companies of all sizes and types are impacted by security lapses, digital security compromises and data breaches.

Ransomware, malware, spyware and denials of service can bring a business to its knees and erode trust with customers. Cybersecurity insurance is only one piece of the puzzle when it comes to protecting data and restoring operations when bad actors attack. When an incident occurs, we’re ready to help you respond to the legal ramifications and ensure proper insurance recovery, when applicable, as painlessly as possible.

Preparing for the Future

Preparation is the best approach. Internal policies, systems and procedures need to be written and followed to adhere to all applicable jurisdictional requirements. Navigating these can be especially tricky when operating a multi-jurisdictional business. Employees, contractors, and other business partners need to be held accountable to your standards of care. Murphy Pearson’s Privacy and Cybersecurity Practice is here to help companies bridge the gap between their historical practices and the quickly evolving demands moving us into the future.
