Areas of Practice
The Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Law Practice Group at YCRLAW provides a variety of services to clients in this emerging, evolving field. The attorneys in this group provide their clients full services regarding their information security and data privacy needs. The group’s chair, Leslie Whitten, is a Certified Information Privacy Professional/US (CIPP/US) through the International Association of Privacy Professionals.
YCRLAW offers advice for clients to create a first line of defense to prevent security breaches and ensure compliance with legal requirements. Attorneys will draft or review privacy policies, security policies, and incident response plans.
Data Breach Prevention, Response, and Litigation
The US laws surrounding notice and other handling during a data breach can vary depending on the state or the type of data breached, such as sensitive financial or health records. The attorneys at YCRLAW are available to help clients respond quickly in the wake of a breach, and in compliance with state, federal, and where applicable, international laws. We are also available to help clients mitigate losses during this crucial time, including referrals to qualified IT professionals.
