The fact remains that data breach is not an entirely avoidable risk, but it needs to be handled aggressively to control losses should an adverse event take place.

Data security best practices continue to evolve in law

Posted by Laura Hayes on May 11, 2015 11:34:00 AM

Legal entities tend to get held to a higher standard when it comes to data management and security practices, as virtually all of the information these organizations handle will be sensitive in one way or another.

Posted by Laura Hayes on Apr 23, 2015 11:03:00 AM

Data breach has been one of the more common terms in the news of late, with the rate of cybercrimes increasing steadily and rapidly throughout the past several years and little indication of it slowing any time soon.
