Cyber attacks are growing in scale and sophistication just as many businesses are increasingly providing and using products and services online. Concern is fuelled by well-resourced and high profile businesses publicly falling prey to cyber attacks. As a result, in addition to commercial concerns, more and more businesses and boards of directors are questioning:
what are our legal obligations and tools relevant to cyber security?
Like many businesses, Bell Gully recognises that cyber security is much more than a technology issue. We have a cross-practice team experienced in cyber security issues.
Our cyber security team brings together expertise in privacy and data protection, employment, governance, commercial, consumer, technology and e-commerce, intellectual property, insurance and risk, financial services, crisis management and litigation. Our team helps clients to understand their cyber risks, to manage and transfer those risks through insurance and contractual means, and to understand and satisfy governance, contractual and regulatory obligations. We also assist our clients to prepare cyber incident response plans and to manage cyber security incidents and breaches when they occur.
