Privacy, Data and Cybersecurity

Accessing, maintaining, safeguarding and exchanging personal, consumer and business information fosters both unlimited possibilities and new risks and vulnerabilities for organizations across the globe.

Overview

Jackson Lewis’ interdisciplinary Privacy, Data and Cybersecurity Group, comprised of experienced attorneys many of whom are “Certified Information Privacy Professionals” (CIPP) by the International Association of Privacy Professionals, stays on the edge of legal developments affecting our clients’ workplace, business and marketing risks—and opportunities—in the digital age.

We fully appreciate the value and sensitivity of data and we take a holistic, value-add approach in advising clients, regularly coordinating with other subject matter experts, such as information technology vendors, to provide practical advice and preventive strategies that address the range of potential issues relating to privacy, e-communication and data security.

The group has three primary areas of focus. For each, we provide clients with preventive strategies and compliance advice, including policy development and training, and represent them in related administrative enforcement actions and litigation, including class actions.
