Data Breach Incident Response
In the unfortunate case of a data breach incident, the cybersecurity and data privacy attorneys at Cohen|Harris will work diligently to craft an effective and legally sound response. These steps include:
1) Resolving the breach based on best legal practices
2) Investigating the causes of the incident
3) Alerting the appropriate authorities and impacted individuals based on applicable laws and regulations
Failure to address a data breach swiftly could lead to more extensive damage and increased access for malicious actors. Additionally, the legal penalties for failure to properly respond or provide notice of a data breach incident can often be just as damaging as a cyberattack. Our legal team works side-by-side with organizations to contain, mitigate, and respond to these incidents following the standards of applicable data privacy rules and regulations.
