One need only scan the front page headlines to see that our cyber defenses are more vulnerable than ever. From the Equifax breach, which involved the personal data of more than 143 million Americans, to the WannaCry ransomware attack, which crippled hundreds of organizations around the globe, it is clear that cyber incidents are on the rise and increasing in severity.

During this Cybersecurity Awareness Month, it is more important than ever to stay cyber aware. Morrison & Foerster is uniquely positioned to provide insight and counsel on the various facets of breach preparedness and response. Our market-leading Global Privacy + Data Security team has decades of collective experience helping clients:
