Cyber Security & Data Privacy

Riker Danzig Scherer Hyland & Perretti LLP is one of New Jersey’s oldest and largest law firms.  Utilizing its strengths in litigation, government affairs, and risk counseling, Riker Danzig has helped clients who encounter the legal difficulties presented by cyberattacks, loss of electronic data, mistakes in electronic fund transfers, and other computer-related issues.

The Firm has found that cyber issues often require a multi-disciplinary approach to contain and mitigate risk.  It is essential that legal counsel coordinate the resources of a company’s technology experts, financial personnel, and executives to ensure that a cyber or technology problem has been addressed appropriately and efficiently, with a sensitivity to the privacy, regulatory, and liability exposures that these issues present.  We are able to draw on attorneys from our practice groups who specialize in litigation, insurance, white collar crime, transactions, government affairs, intellectual property, and technology and emerging growth companies, to find workable and business savvy solutions for cyber-related problems.

Our experience in this area has ranged from involvement in the legal aftermath of some of the world’s largest and most notable cyberattacks, to counseling clients during and immediately after sensitive electronic security breaches.  The following examples help illustrate our experience in this rapidly evolving and growing area.
