Cyber Security Law
Sometimes the end of the Cyber Attack is only the beginning of Your Problems
In most cases, once IT finishes its job, you’ve recovered from whatever problems arose out of your lost time.
Unfortunately, some situations require more than just managing the technical side of an attack. At this point, you need a law firm that has the skills and experience to represent your interests in a variety of forums.
Whether it’s representing your interests in a regulatory investigation and hearing, defending your business in litigation in arbitration forums, state, or federal courts, or pursuing other individuals or businesses who may be responsible for your damages, the Law Offices of Brian C. Focht stand ready to advocate for you.
At the Law Offices of Brian C. Focht, we will represent your business:
Representing your business in regulatory investigations and proceedings
If your business operates in an industry subject to state and/or federal regulation, one of the most frightening prospects is facing a team of regulators sifting through your files, just looking for a reason to penalize you.
Just as if this was an investigation by criminal law enforcement, you should always make sure you have effective legal representation standing at your side in any investigation like this.
We stand ready to advise you during any regulatory investigation, and represent you in front of any administrative hearing or prosecution. We will aggressively represent your business…
We will defend your business against lawsuits in any forum
When your business is the victim of a cyber attack, your customers and clients can easily become victims themselves. Just like you, they’re frustrated and angry, especially when the attack resulted in financial loss or identity theft.
Unfortunately, your business might be the only place they have to look for compensation. While it certainly is understandable, that doesn’t make it right.
At the Law Offices of Brian C. Focht, we have the skills and experience necessary to protect you from litigation of any type. Having litigated matters in state and federal court, as well as in numerous different arbitration settings, we are ready to defend your business against all threats of litigation.
Pursue claims – including lawsuits – against third parties
Cyber attacks have the potential to decimate a business, leaving inaccessible data, shattered confidence, and massive financial losses in their wake.
If someone is responsible for the damage done to your business, and we are able to find out who they are, you need a law firm capable of pursuing every potential right you have against them, in order to help repair the damage.
The Law Offices of Brian C. Focht has the litigation experience, combined with the cyber security knowledge and skills, to be that law firm. We will aggressively pursue your rights against hackers, nation states, or even your own vendors if they bear some responsibility for the damage suffered by your business.
File, pursue, and – if necessary – litigate insurance claims
We all have similar opinions of how insurance companies work: when asked to pay out on a claim, they will usually do everything possible to minimize the amount.
As an attorney who has worked with insurance companies my entire career, I understand this – it’s their job.
However, that means you need someone pursuing your claims who knows how to make sure you get everything you’re entitled to out of your insurance policy.
At the Law Offices of Brian C. Focht, we routinely work with – and for – insurance companies. That experience is critical in understanding exactly what needs to be done in order to make sure you get every cent that you’re entitled to.
We will work hard on your behalf, keeping the insurance companies honest, even if doing so means we have to pursue your rights in court. We’re here to protect you and your business, and make sure you recover everything you’re entitled to.
