Data security is a heightened concern with the proliferation of technology in every aspect of our lives and business.  Business activity and personal activity generates data points that identify the recipient of data, its author, and the environment through which the data is transmitted. Every day we learn of how our data generated by our digital life is compromised. We counsel on legal requirements of data management, storage, and cyber communication issues affecting technologyintellectual property, computer use policies, internet use, cloud computing services, cyber access, digital communications, content programming, and other business aspects that are pertinent to digital process and cyber security.  We utilize the forensic expertise of experts to discover the reason for the irregular operation or irregular events occurring in our clients’ business. The need to investigate the issues is crucial.

Businesses tend to express that their method of handling private financial data and consumer information is secure.  We advise clients on their expressed data handling methods and security claims.  Care needs to be exercised because exaggerated claims will draw attention from the FTC regarding deceptive practices and apprise clients on FCC issues.  Our efforts have involved the need to reach out to law enforcement, i.e., the FBI and the Secret Service, to engage their efforts for investigating incidents. Compliance with state and federal provisions and their notification requirements are addressed when a data breach incident occurs.  Our data security and privacy counsel compliance service deals with Electronic Communication Privacy Act (ECPA); Economic Espionage Act; Federal and State Computer Fraud Abuse Act; Stored Communications Act (SCA); Electronic Communications Transactions Act (ECTA); Gramm-Leach-Bliley-Act (Financial Privacy); Drivers Privacy Protection Act; Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), and much more.
