Data Privacy and Cybersecurity

Today’s companies depend on data.  Jenner & Block helps organizations develop a secure and practical legal framework for the data that they collect, use, analyze, and share, and we help defend that framework from legal challenge. We also work with clients to investigate and respond to threats targeting their data.

In the face of today’s proliferation of legal regimes governing data processing and threat actors targeting the data itself, our Data Privacy and Cybersecurity Practice provides holistic, proactive advice to clients.  Clients turn to our Data Privacy and Cybersecurity professionals for counseling on a variety of privacy and data security issues.  We work with clients to establish privacy programs, update privacy policies, understand regulatory frameworks, perform risk assessments, assess cybersecurity needs, respond to and manage data incidents, interface with regulators and represent our clients’ interests in the courtroom.

With no shortage of proposed privacy legislation around the globe, we also make sure clients stay up-to-date on the legislative developments that will impact their business, with a focus at the US state and federal levels. For some clients, that means monitoring newly proposed data privacy legislation, highlighting those issues that are most important to the client’s operations; for others, we take a deep dive in newly proposed legislation to assist clients in evaluating how their business will need to adapt to the new legislation; finally, for others, we support our clients’ efforts to comment on legislation through the drafting of testimony, comments and development of an overall legislative strategy.

The lawyers in the Data Privacy and Cybersecurity Practice represent an interdisciplinary roster of lawyers who counsel, investigate, and litigate on behalf of clients across a wide array of privacy and data security issues in the United States and Europe.
