Cyber & Security

More than a third of global organisations have been the victim of a cyber-attack in the past year. For those ill equipped to fend off an attack the consequences can be devastating. The threat is a 24/7 concern for organisations and Governments alike. The need for comprehensive strategies and first-class support for preventing and dealing with an attack has never been more important.

From our experience, cyber security is not only about having compliant policies and notifying breaches to regulators when required by law. Clients need practical advice on what other companies do in terms of best practice and what issues regulators will or will not tolerate. 

Increasingly, businesses need a range of complementary services, including: 

  • Advice on directors' duties and data governance
  • Assistance in reviewing their insurance policies and considering what coverage they should have or what they should commit to in their customer and supplier contracts
  • HR support in order to monitor threats affecting employees, investigating incidents and, where necessary, taking disciplinary action
  • Help ensuring that best practices are implemented in information security in transactions, including appropriate diligence in mergers and acquisitions, financing arrangements and technology and commercial contracts
  • Advice on mergers and acquisitions
  • Advice on sector-specific regulation that builds on general privacy laws, including regimes in areas such as financial services and telecommunications
  • Advice on financings of specialist cyber security businesses
  • Assistance in managing disputes that arise as a result of cyber security incidents and loss of data
  • Advice on cyber security certification regimes, including the EU's new Cybersecurity Act
  • Help with specialist cyber security contracts, ranging from penetration testing through to broader outsourcing information security and security operations services
