Data Privacy & Security
Balch & Bingham’s Data Privacy & Security Practice designs comprehensive prevention and reporting methods and policies to help businesses protect against, prevent, and combat technology-related breaches.
Our decades of experience serving as counsel for companies in highly-regulated industries and advising them on privacy and data security issues, combined with deep regulatory relationships and a comprehensive understanding of data technology, allows us to help companies maximize the value data offers to their businesses while protecting against intrusions.
We provide trusted counsel in policy development, insurance coverage, data security audits, certification, government affairs, and third-party contract negotiation to best shield clients should a breach occur. Our team knows how to navigate clients through data breach crises, understanding what the breach was intended to accomplish, addressing the impact a breach could have on internal and external audiences, and developing necessary notifications. Additionally, we establish procedures for a defensible investigation and connect clients with complementary providers to help navigate breaches.
Our cross-functional team of attorneys combines their expertise in labor and employment, product liability, healthcare, financial services, and energy to deliver comprehensive counsel in each engagement.
