Armstrong Teasdale’s Privacy and Data Security attorneys work across disciplines. The team includes attorneys who are Certified Information Privacy Professionals and Certified Ethical Hackers. Our team of business, intellectual property, and litigation attorneys are knowledgeable in both U.S. and international data security and privacy law. Our lawyers routinely advise businesses on compliance and risk management issues, developing and implementing effective risk assessments, breach response planning, privacy policies and practices, providing employee training programs, responding to regulatory inquiries, investigations and litigation matters.
Our experienced attorneys have worked on data privacy and security issues in various industries including financial services, insurance, retail, communications, health care, manufacturing, technology, and energy and utilities. Drawing upon the broad experience of our attorneys and the firm’s industry-specific knowledge, we use a coordinated approach to assess risk and vulnerability and develop compliance solutions to mitigate the risk of theft or breaches. We believe that being proactive and incorporating privacy by design principles when possible will help our clients respond to government regulators’ expectations while avoiding or minimizing competitive and reputational harm. Further, the team’s litigators have extensive experience representing individuals and organizations in complex commercial disputes, including those involving the misappropriation of trade secrets, computer tampering, nondisclosure and noncompete agreements, social networking law and more.
The team has authored a guide that provides a detailed overview of U.S. information privacy and data security laws relevant to U.S. businesses. Be sure to pick up a copy from Armstrong Teasdale’s booth while attending the conference.
