Cyber Security & Data Privacy

Today’s corporations, employers, and other holders of consumer data face a new world of legal, regulatory, and financial liability associated with the threat of data breach. Led by a partner equipped with the Certified Information Privacy Professional/US designation—the gold standard for privacy expertise administered by the IAPP—Walsh is ready to help clients navigate the dynamic and constantly evolving challenges of cyber security and data privacy at every stage. Our attorneys assist clients in the preparation of terms and conditions for web-based businesses and mobile apps, including e-commerce as well as gaming apps.  We also advise clients on breach preparedness, strategize and manage crisis response in the event a breach occurs, and aggressively defend class action litigation or regulatory enforcement issues that may arise in the aftermath. We also handle matters at the intersection of data and privacy and other fields of law, such as employment and the protection of corporate intellectual property, trade secrets and other proprietary information. Our attorneys have helped clients enforce the provisions of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, unmask anonymous Internet wrongdoers, and defend claims arising out of criminal computer usage in the workplace. Our attorneys are established in the field, regularly speaking and writing on cutting-edge technology issues, such as privacy and cyber security, content piracy, and e-discovery.
