Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is a major concern among several industries, and is rampantly growing. Cybersecurity affects more and more companies globally as they fall victims to varying types of cyber attacks. These attacks are growing in frequency, complexity and ferocity. Organizations, of various sizes, are an ever-growing target of sophisticated attempts to steal their data and compromise their systems. Lawmakers around the world are struggling to keep up with this rapidly changing environment and even the requirements for publicly reporting security breaches once discovered remain in flux. I&O lawyers have broad experience dealing with these type of attacks. We have a dedicated group of technology-savvy lawyers with vast industry-specific experience who utilize a unique approach to help clients in these areas.

Information can be considered “a means of exchange” in today’s commerce, and businesses face the constant and growing threat of cyberattacks – intentional as well as inadvertent.  Your business faces many challenges in the digital environment:

    • Your information systems face several cyber threats – spam, phishing, malware, hacking, and even brute force attacks;
    • Employees unintentionally open attachments with viruses or malicious software; and
    • Private customer information is disclosed through omission or theft.

State and federal governments have responded by developing (and continuing to develop) an aggressive regulatory landscape that, as much as a breach itself, can be challenging to navigate.

You need our cybersecurity lawyers to help you meet those challenges and manage information risk.

At I&O Law, we offer a privileged relationship through which you can create a program to recognize & succeed in managing security risks, guard your digital information and networks, and respond to cybersecurity attacks.  In summary, our comprehensive program works exclusively for your business to pursue the inter-connected goals of confidentiality, integrity and availability
