Data Privacy & Cybersecurity

Squire Patton Boggs Data Privacy & Cybersecurity team of global professionals will keep your organization ahead of the curve by keeping you abreast of the legal, regulatory, policy and legislative changes that will impact your business. They advise clients in all the legal, regulatory policy and legislative issues that have substantive impacts on the way the public and private sectors manage information collection, storage, transfer and cybersecurity risks, both before there is a breach and after it has occurred.

Squire Patton Boggs global team works collaboratively across multiple jurisdictions on a diverse range of local, regional and international issues in both developed and emerging markets, operating under very different data protection, privacy and cybersecurity regimes.

Cybersecurity

Squire Patton Boggs global Data Privacy & Cybersecurity team works across borders and practice specialties to deliver comprehensive and strategic advice and counsel on cybersecurity. They address cybersecurity and privacy issues, cyber theft and data breach prevention, as well as the liability stemming from data breaches and post-breach forensics.

Squire Patton Boggs experience with the broad swathe of policy, regulatory, legislative, legal, compliance and enforcement issues that impact risk management and cybersecurity means we can offer valuable and proactive advice to clients in critical infrastructure sectors, such as banking and financial services, energy, telecommunications, information technology and health, along with other industries impacted by cybersecurity concerns.

The Emerging Role of Regulators and Cybersecurity

As cybersecurity risks grow exponentially around the world, regulators across the globe are looking at new ways to manage the risk. We bring a global view of what is happening in the emerging realms of cybersecurity in other countries, including in the EU, Asia Pacific, Latin America and others. In many cases, we can help our global clients anticipate how emerging cybersecurity policies, regulations and laws are being debated around the world, and share best practices about what has worked and what happens. The increasingly connected nature of the globe dictates that corporations need teams like ours who have detailed experience in all of these matters.

As a result, that means we can help clients understand how proposed cyber changes will impact their current – and often complex and overlapping – regulatory regimes. For example, in the US, we work closely with the White House and relevant federal agencies. We also work with independent agencies, including the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and entities like the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), as well as every committee jurisdiction in Congress.

We have similar capabilities in Brussels and key EU member states, as well as in the Asia Pacific region, to help ensure global messaging, coordination and solutions.
