Privacy & Cybersecurity

Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger LLP’s privacy and cybersecurity attorneys counsel clients on a complex range of rapidly evolving laws, regulations and industry standards related to privacy and cybersecurity.

Our privacy and cybersecurity attorneys, in connection with attorneys in our Intellectual Property & Technology and Commercial Litigation groups, help clients identify risks and develop real-time response strategies to minimize disruption in the face of cybersecurity incidents, as well as to navigate the governmental investigations and private litigation that often accompany a cybersecurity incident.

Our privacy and cybersecurity attorneys counsel clients with regard to all aspects of federal and state laws governing privacy and information security, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) as well with regard to designing and implementing privacy and information security compliance programs.

Our privacy and cybersecurity attorneys, in connection with attorneys in our Corporate & Business Transactions and Intellectual Property & Technology groups, also counsel clients with regard to privacy and cybersecurity issues related to social media, cloud computing, personal data gathering, app creation, online advertising and marketing and data gathering, as well as draft privacy policies, terms of use and other agreements necessary for web-based commerce.

While all of our privacy and cybersecurity attorneys are sensitive to and counsel clients on privacy issues, whether arising in the United States, Europe or Canada, one member of our team is additionally credentialed as Certified Information Privacy Professional with the International Association of Privacy Professionals.
