Privacy and Data Security

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