Our deep understanding helps safeguard your data

The attorneys of the Cybersecurity Law Group at Burns White understand the many security risks that cyber threats can present to your information systems and other vulnerable technology.

Whether it’s the development of preventive action plans or representation in a legal claim, you can trust our experience to help develop and implement strategies that mitigate your legal and financial exposure.

Supporting a wide range of industries

We represent businesses in a wide range of industries, including financial services, healthcare, and retail, with services that help prevent attacks, defend individual and class action legal claims, obtain proper insurance for cybersecurity-related risks and losses, and comply with industry and agency regulations.

By leveraging the resources, skills, and experience of members from related practice groups in the firm, we’re able to design client-specific solutions that assist with security protection needs detailed to each specific industry. Our attorneys also have a deep understanding of the risks related to breaches of medical and financial records, and federal and state data protection and privacy laws.

A thorough understanding of liability and insurance

Our knowledge of current common law, statutory, and regulatory theories of liability, allows us to evaluate and advise on the best available insurance policies and coverage, including first- and third-party coverages, for cybersecurity-related risks and liabilities. The team also evaluates cyber-insurance coverage within existing and potential third-party indemnity agreements — to address adequate protection, use of additional insured clauses, and related items. We help our clients to assessment internal company policies and create preventive plans of action for directors, officers, and related stakeholders, particularly for issues involving potential breaches of fiduciary duty.
