Trenam Law Launches Cybersecurity Practice in Response to Rising Cyber Threat for Middle Market Businesses
Trenam Law is pleased to announce the launch of its Cybersecurity Practice. The team assists clients in the range of legal and business considerations related to data security, from developing cyber breach prevention plans to counseling in the event of a breach. The team is led by John Goldsmith and Frank Santini.
Trenam’s Cybersecurity attorneys counsel businesses of all sizes, as well as their boards, in the full range of cybersecurity issues at various business and risk stages. The team works in conjunction with technical specialists, public relations firms, and insurance providers toward developing a comprehensive plan tailored to each business client. In addition to conducting pre-breach security, self-governance, and insurance assessments, the team formulates incident response strategies. In the event of a breach, Trenam’s Cybersecurity team assists clients in coordinating technical remediation, crisis management, mandatory breach notification, and defending organizations in litigation and regulatory proceedings following a breach.
Supporting Trenam’s industry teams that span the health care, financial services, hospitality, construction, and defense contracting sectors, the Cybersecurity Practice blends the experience of a cross-disciplinary team to counsel clients.
“While big name brands often dominate news headlines for their data breaches, small and mid-sized companies are just as vulnerable,” said John Goldsmith, Shareholder and Team Leader. “Regardless of size, all businesses need to evaluate risk and be prepared to respond to vulnerabilities or breaches, and our team helps to navigate those issues to ensure our clients are leveraging opportunities in today’s digital age while protecting and advancing their business objectives.”
Trenam’s Cybersecurity Practice works with organizations to comply with state and federal laws and regulations as well as take appropriate steps to meet business needs. Following a breach, the firm counsels clients in notifying affected individuals, law enforcement, and the organization’s insurer. Additionally, Trenam facilitates forensic investigation to mitigate the threat and advises on media relations efforts to limit reputational damages.
