In helping you deal with a cyber security incident, we bring to the table not only our legal expertise, but also the insights and gumption developed  during over 10 years of  specialist experience. 

When you suffer a cyber security breach, your response needs to be immediate, efficient and properly co-ordinated. Several jurisdictions, such as those in the EU have mandatory breach notification requirements, which can be as tight as 72 hours (or less in certain cases). Remember: most organisations that have been criticised for a cyber security breach were not criticised so much because they suffered a breach, but rather because of the way in which they handled it.

However, your response should also be pragmatic and proportionate. Having the right legal advisors on your side in these circumstances is essential.

You incident response plan and broader preparedness efforts should give you a clear framework in which you will deal with the incident, by identifying and containing the problem, taking the right remedial and risk mitigation action, controlling the narrative and limiting its impact.

That is what we help you do: complying with regulations and best practice in a pragmatic way, ensuring that the right information is quickly given to the relevant decision makers, helping your senior stakeholders make decisions, creating a consistent narrative through PR and internal communications, handling internal and external investigations, delivering continuous legal advice to senior management and helping you handle regulatory liaison. We will advise you on risk from day one, and will help you devise and adapt your approach to an incident while you are dealing with it.
