Helping Companies Ensure Cybersecurity Legal Compliance
As the cyber threat continues to grow exponentially, companies must also contend with an increased regulatory environment mandating the protection of data, with crippling fees and penalties for noncompliance. Our goal is to ensure our clients are prepared when the unthinkable happens.
As part of our range of business law services, Sheehan, Schiavoni, Jutras & Magliocchetti, LLP, attorneys educate businesses on the growing threat of cyberattacks and the need to remain vigilant to protect data.
Keeping You One Step Ahead Of Costly Cyber Threats
Cyberattacks of all kinds are now becoming a daily occurrence and the statistics regarding the impact of cyberattacks are sobering. The average cost of a data breach can cost companies hundreds of thousands – if not millions – of dollars, and that amount continues to grow as attacks increase in frequency and sophistication. Small businesses are particularly vulnerable because they are specifically targeted by hackers because, as a general rule, they have less stringent cybersecurity policies and training. businesses must take steps to mitigate business losses and potential penalties if a breach occurs.
Sadly, most unprepared companies are generally out of business within one year of a breach.
Our cybersecurity and privacy practice is led by retired FBI Special Agent in Charge – William Chase – who ran the Cyber programs in two FBI Divisions. Since retiring, he has maintained his focus on cybersecurity and insider threat while consulting for large government contractors.
After providing a detailed education on cyber legal compliance to our clients, we conduct an assessment to determine their current cybersecurity posture. This includes:
- Inspecting client premises
- Interviewing the business legal compliance leadership
- Reviewing processes and systems
These findings are then discussed in detail with leadership and outlined in a legal compliance report. We also review employee handbooks to ensure cybersecurity is appropriately addressed, and each employee understands their responsibility to protect client data.
Finally, if a breach occurs, we assist our business clients in making all required notifications and taking actions required to mitigate the loss and potential fines and penalties. Cyber legal compliance is no longer an option for businesses.
