PROTECTING YOUR BUSINESS FROM THE FALLOUT OF A CYBER SECURITY INCIDENT IN THE WEEKS AND MONTHS FOLLOWING AN ATTACK
A cyber security incident can have long-reaching effects, even after the immediate crisis has passed. Your business can be exposed to liability on a number of fronts, such as:
- Claims from employees having suffered disclosure of personally identifying information
- Claims from clients having suffered disclosure of personally identifying information
- Investigations and sanctions imposed by regulatory authorities located in various countries, provinces and states as a result of disclosure of personally identifying information
- Claims for breach of contract due to disruption of service
While rapid intervention during the immediate crisis can mitigate these risks, it is essential to have legal counsel who understands the issues at play and is qualified to guide your company through the strategic challenges caused by cyber security incidents and our team is well placed to assist you in finding efficient and cost-effective ways to mitigate the long-term impact of these events.
