Represent Financial Institution After Potential Data Breach, Advise on Policies
We represented a financial institution after a data breach occurred. Someone broke into our client’s facility and stole computer equipment and files that contained potentially confidential information. However, the files were appropriately redacted and the equipment was encrypted, both of which prevented any confidential information from being discovered or released. Following the incident, we worked with the client to ensure their policies remained strong and also evaluated their response to the breach to ensure they remain proactive in the case of another incident.
