Our team routinely leads clients through security and privacy crises and challenges. We have managed responses to myriad sophisticated and complex data security threats and cyberattacks, including incidents involving theft of proprietary information and protected data; network intrusions; state-sponsored attacks; competitive and corporate espionage and theft; lost and stolen electronic devices; ransomware and extortion; business email compromises and phishing attacks; white, black and grey hat security disclosures; insider threats and employee misuse; and coding errors and inadvertent disclosures.
