Seemingly everyday, cybersecurity, privacy and data breaches are making major national headlines. No doubt about it, confidential and sensitive personal and corporate information is at risk to cybercrime and nation-state attackers.

The key to defending against such attacks is preparation; to wit, developing the policies, plans and strategies to resist data breaches and mitigate potential damage. To that end, M&R offers a vertically integrated, interdisciplinary team of lawyers who work diligently to protect our clients’ security environments, maximize uninterrupted use of networks, prevent unauthorized access and cyber incidents and otherwise minimize cybersecurity and privacy risks and exposure.

The firm’s professionals employ their vast legal and technical knowledge and experience in counseling a wide range of organizations in an array of industries – advertising and digital Media, banking and financial services, health care, hospitality, insurance and retail and apparel, among them – on improving cybersecurity preparedness and policy development to quickly mitigate and recover from cyber attacks should they occur.
