DATA MANAGEMENT & CYBER SECURITY LAW
A new concern for the private and public sector entities is the potential liability related to the disclosure or theft of private information. Organizations hold such information on their clients, partners, citizens and employees, as do their vendors.
MRR’s approach to data management is to counsel its clients on the prevention of data breaches by cultivating a culture of security. But as current research suggests, most organizations will eventually be breached if they have not already; so MRR also counsels its clients on how to prepare for the eventual breach by seeking insurance for this risk and by assembling a team of vendors that can assist in the technical, public relations, and legal response to a data breach.
MRR attorney Barry Miller is a member of the Defense Research Institute’s Data Management and Security Committee and the past chair of the Primerus Quality Assurance Board’s Cyber Security Committee.
