A data breach can easily cost a company hundreds of thousands of dollars just to remediate. This does not include reputational damage and other associated losses. If you experience a security incident or data breach, it is imperative that you engage skilled breach counsel immediately.
Dealing with a data breach involves a phased incident response carried out by an incident response team (CSIRT) at the direction of legal counsel. The incident response will involve triage, containment, eradication, forensic analysis, and system restoration. The response must be swift and according to proper protocol to mitigate the damage.
Exposure to legal liability can be substantial following a breach and includes lawsuits by affected parties, governmental enforcement actions, professional sanctions, fines and penalties for notification and compliance failures, and contractual claims. Relic Law specializes in handling breaches and will ensure your interests are protected.
Our approach will include engaging the incident response team, coordinating breach related activities, and taking every measure possible to reduce your potential liability. If personal information has been exposed, we will determine whether breach notification is necessary under the law and prepare the appropriate response.
In addition, our team will handle any additional fallout resulting from the breach, including communicating and negotiating with law enforcement and regulators, and representing you in any legal proceedings.
