Cyber Security and Privacy Laws - A Legal Minefield

The old adage, " A man who is his own lawyer, surely has a fool for a client" was never truer than for someone that thinks they can decipher all of the cybersecurity and privacy laws that exist today in the world. 

In the United States alone, there are arguably 86 different "privacy laws, but there are only 25 states with cybersecurity laws.  The EU instituted the GDPR, which goes a long way towards making a uniform approach to Privacy Law, but gives each member nation leeway in interpreting enforcement and regulation.  The new ENISA E-Cyber Laws in the EU help establish baseline cybersecurity "best practice" except that over the next several years, it also intends to implement fines and penalties.  Throughout the world, ISO 27000/27001 has been recognized standards to help businesses who wish to implement stringent processes to protect their infrastructure and clients, but that may not be enough in a world where governments are taking the regulatory "bull" by the horns.  

A strong legal team is your only defense in an ever-changing regulatory environment, and Data Privacy Group works with the top firms throughout the world in every jurisdiction across multiple industry sectors so that we can help you find the right type of law firm to meet your needs and limit your expenses.  We can engage lawyers for your specific regulatory demands and make sure that you are not wasting valuable time and expense using attorneys that are not explicitly dedicated to the specific tasks needed for your needs.
