MoFo’s Award-Winning Data Protection Team Provides Step-by-Step Guidance, Learn More
Cementing the firm’s reputation as a leading cybersecurity and privacy firm, Legal 500 has honored MoFo for the second straight year. The firm was named the 2015 Cyber Crime Firm of the Year, and was also named the 2014 TMT Regulatory Firm of the Year, based on its privacy and data security work. The awards are based on feedback from 250,000 in-house lawyers interviewed during the year and on research conducted by Legal 500, the world’s largest legal guide.
These accolades have stemmed from MoFo’s reputation as the firm of choice for numerous clients in handling cybersecurity and data breach responses. We are particularly adept at counseling companies that operate in highly regulated sectors (such as financial services, healthcare, retail, and pharmaceuticals) and those operating internationally.
We have developed dozens of comprehensive customized incident and data breach response plans, trained staff, conducted extensive table top exercises, and addressed key issues with Boards of Directors. For example, our pre-breach preparedness work also involves drafting all documents relating to security breach responses, including notification letters, scripts, and questions and answers for individuals, as well as notification letters to government and regulatory authorities and credit reporting agencies.
In addition, a prominent aspect of our practice is advising our clients when the inevitable security incident occurs. We have helped hundreds of clients respond to all types of emergency data incidents, from nation state attacks and fraud ring hacks to the more mundane, such as lost backup tapes. We are at the forefront of helping clients respond to emergency situations and have provided counsel on several of the most noteworthy security incidents over the past few years, including serving as Target’s lead counsel on their security incident involving theft of credit card and other personal information from up to 70 million individual customers.
Several of our attorneys hold leadership positions with government and association entities. They have written the leading treatises in this area, helping us stay one step ahead for our clients. We’ve seen it all when it comes to cybersecurity and related data breach issues, and welcome the chance to discuss your needs and how we can help.
