New Practice Group Addresses Cybersecurity, Data Privacy Needs

Crowe & Dunlevy helps businesses prevent & resolve threats 

OKLAHOMA CITY – Ransomware. Spyware. Viruses. Logic bombs.

Businesses today face cyber threats that were unimaginable as little as 20 years ago, and the methods and severity of these attacks seem to change with each passing month. New threats demand new responses and professionals trained specifically to anticipate and respond to those threats.

Crowe & Dunlevy has established a dedicated practice group to meet the ever-changing world of cybersecurity and data privacy. The firm’s team was formed with the specific goals of helping clients prevent breaches, prepare for incidents and comply with evolving governmental requirements.

Attorney Anthony Hendricks will serve as chair of the practice group.

The impact of a data breach or cybersecurity incident can be devastating, and virtually no type or size of business is immune from this fast-growing danger. Because this threat touches every industry, the Crowe & Dunlevy Cybersecurity & Data Privacy Practice Group works collaboratively with the firm’s other attorneys to provide a comprehensive approach to cybersecurity and data protection, including auditing response plans, security policies and employees’ compliance.

In the event of a data breach, the firm’s response team can help clients investigate and navigate state and federal requirements for notification and disclosure regarding the breach. Should a breach result in litigation, the firm’s attorneys can help assess and evaluate clients’ exposure and defend them in court or administrative hearings.
