Cyberattacks – From hospitals to media companies to manufacturing plants, ransomware and other cyberattacks are increasingly prevalent and have far-reaching impacts. As companies store more of their valuable data in electronic form, they are increasingly vulnerable to attacks that render their data inaccessible. In addition to data loss, these incidents raise significant business and legal risks, including damage to brand and reputation, disruption of business operations, and contractual and regulatory obligations. We have helped Fortune 500 companies and other leading companies respond to dozens of significant ransomware incidents and have experience with wide-ranging ransomware variants including Ryuk, Maze, Sodinokibi/REvil, WastedLocker, Megacortex, Nephilim, Suncrypt, and Harma.
We have served as lead counsel on some of the highest-profile ransomware attacks and breaches of recent years, coordinating all response components, including responding to regulatory inquiries and investigations, defending clients in multi-jurisdiction litigation, engaging on public and customer relations issues, advising on contractual obligations and remedies and working with forensic investigators, credit monitoring firms, crises communications professionals – any third party providers needed – to provide an integrated, cost-effective, and seamless response to your data security incident.
