Data Breach Response

In the wake of a data breach, the steps taken by a business can have a significant influence on the nature, extent, and severity of the breach and, ultimately, on liability exposure. If a business fails to quickly and adequately respond to a data breach, for example, then the courts may impose liability for such failure (and depending on the circumstances, punitive damages may also be available).

The data breach lawyers at KDV Law have extensive experience guiding clients through the post-breach process. Our services include, but are not limited to:

• Assistance in creating cybersecurity response teams
• Comprehensively managing the response to a data breach
• Coordinating an investigation into the cybersecurity issues lying at the center of the data breach
• Helping clients comply with post-breach collection, notification, and other procedural requirements imposed by data and cybersecurity regulations
• Identifying potential public relations issues and crafting a dispute resolution strategy that advances the overall interests of the client in consideration of those public interest issues (among various other concerns, such as budget)
• Assist clients with strengthening their data protections, performing audits, and changing their internal policies and procedures to prevent a similar breach in the future

Though data breach may lead to damages, an effective post-breach strategy can minimize one’s legal liabilities and shield the client from public relations backlash that has affected so many other businesses in recent years.
