Data Privacy and Cyber Liability
No business is too small or too “low tech” to escape privacy and cyber liability concerns. The highly connected digital world opens up a new range of opportunities, but also increases the risks and responsibilities your company faces for cyber liability. If your company is collecting data of any kind, whether for employees, clients or customers, it must be protected. A security breach can irrevocably damage the trust your customers and your clients have in your company and force you to face a broad range of legal repercussions. Allow the McKenna Storer team to mitigate your company’s risk or provide litigation representation with our data privacy services.

Protect your interests and your clients’ and employees’ information with the right policies and procedures. With advice from our data privacy attorneys, you can ensure that your systems, processes and policies are up-to-date, capable of resisting security breaches and well-suited to meet increasing compliance standards and regulations.
