  • Data privacy and cybersecurity issues are ongoing concerns for companies in today’s world. It is nothing new to hear. By now, every company is aware of the existence of cybersecurity threats and the need to try to protect itself. There are almost daily reports of data breaches and/or ransomware attacks. Companies spend substantial resources to try to ensure the security of their confidential information, as well as the personal and confidential information of their customers, employees and business partners. As part of those efforts, companies are faced with managing and understanding their various legal and regulatory obligations governing the protection, disclosure and/or sharing of data – depending on their specific industry and the type of data they handle – as well as meeting the expectations of their customers to avoid reputational harm.
