Cybersecurity and PrivacyPDF
Robinson Bradshaw's Cybersecurity and Privacy Practice Group brings together a multidisciplinary team of attorneys to help clients navigate the rapidly evolving areas of cybersecurity and privacy law. We partner with clients across the country and across industries to provide solution-driven legal guidance and resolve disputes arising out of cybersecurity incidents and privacy concerns.
We counsel clients regarding developments in cybersecurity and privacy laws, both domestically and abroad, and develop business-friendly solutions to manage legal risk and obligations. Our experience includes advising clients on the collection and handling of personal information, including under Europe's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and on implementing privacy by design and utilizing data assets and analytics. When clients face compliance concerns, we guide them on online and e-commerce privacy obligations, and on privacy and data security obligations specific to the financial services and health care industries and other highly regulated businesses.
Our team, including a former federal cybercrime prosecutor, prepares clients for data breaches and other cybersecurity incidents, and we assist in navigating the complexities of responding when these incidents do occur. We have also represented multiple clients in related disputes and government investigations.
