What kind of Cybersecurity problems can we help solve?
Here are just a few samples...
Data Breach Prevention, Response, & Litigation
Cyber attacks, such as hacking of corporate websites and personal computers are increasingly common. Such attacks can be extremely harmful to companies and individuals alike, especially when a data breach leads to the unauthorized disclosure of confidential business and/or personal/sensitive consumer information. When companies are victims of data breaches, they can face hefty civil penalties, injunctions, even criminal liability if they are found liable due to negligence and failure to meet the standard of care.
