Cyber Liability, Privacy and Data Security

Cyber liability and data privacy are critically important, as cyber-crime and data privacy breaches increasingly create liability for businesses of all sizes. Zarwin Baum’s cyber liability practice is focused on the growing risks and rapidly evolving liability exposures associated with the security and storage of PII, PHI, PCI and proprietary information data. Our privacy attorneys are prepared to handle disputes arising from cyber risks and privacy breaches for a diverse group of industries including technology, retail, healthcare, financial, banking, insurance and education.

We support clients before and after a data breach, identifying and advising on strategies that address and minimize potential legal liabilities and protect the client’s reputation in a cost-effective manner.  Through preemptive consulting including privacy and security assessments, our attorneys work with clients to develop data privacy best practices and incident response plans to minimize the risk of a data breach and put the client in the best position to respond when a breach occurs. To help minimize a client’s potential legal exposure, we assist with the creation of applicable internal policies and procedures, employee training and can guide the purchase of cyber insurance coverage. 

A complete understanding of a client’s insurance program is vital to maximizing protection against cyber risk. Considering the adequacy of existing insurance programs, analyzing new insurance products, and drafting and negotiating cyber insurance policy placements, our attorneys are skilled in guiding the purchase of insurance coverage for various types of cyber risks. When necessary, we will monitor cyber claims and represent clients in coverage litigation.

Zarwin Baum’s Breach Response Team

A prompt and well planned breach response is essential when cyber-attacks occur. Zarwin Baum’s Breach Response Team is positioned to immediately respond to time-sensitive situations with a 24/7 incident response service to meet a client’s urgent needs.

Using cyber forensic investigators and experts to conduct forensic analyses to help determine the cause of the breach and identify the data at risk, the Breach Response Team provides rapid and comprehensive incident response to help minimize exposure and mitigate the number of regulatory and litigation related problems that may arise.  These results determine the scope of a breach and determine what steps are required to comply with individual state security breach notification laws and minimize additional data intrusion. The team works with the client to implement the appropriate protective steps to coordinate breach notification to affected individuals. This includes assisting the client in their efforts to ensure compliance with obligations under a wide variety of consumer and data protection laws, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), and the 2009 Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH).  In addition, our team will assist with the preparation of a crisis communications designed to inform the public and to protect the client’s brand.
