Privacy and Data Security

As businesses move firmly into the age of big data, social networks, and cloud services, the ability to properly gather, protect, and harness user data in compliance with the law presents an enduring challenge. An improper response to a data breach, failure to comply with regulations, or gap in contractual protections for the same can result in serious legal consequences on top of an already difficult crisis situation. The critical question for companies is not whether these situations will arise, but when, and what they can do to protect against such situations.
