Partner Elizabeth Rogers co-authored the white paper “Legal Team’s Role in Investigating and Responding to a Data Breach” published by AccessData® in October 2018.

“Data security incidents continue to pose a serious threat to organizations of all sizes. In 2017 alone, there were 829 data breaches made public, according to the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse. This doesn’t even include the hundreds of additional likely cyber incidents that did not rise to the level of requiring public disclosure.

And while the majority of these breaches were a result of hacking or malware, one in four of them was caused by unintentional disclosure of data by an employee. In fact, most cybersecurity experts warn that it is a matter of when—not if—your company will be a victim of cyber crime.”
