What is a Cyber Security Lawyer, and Do I Need One?
A cyber security consultant, managed services provider (MSP), and CCH member urges a proactive approach to information security challenges in a new article. The informative article first cites the challenge of keeping track of the evolving regulatory compliance and risk management landscape.
The author then asserts that a cyber security lawyer should play a central role in cyber incident preparedness and response. He then explains that cyber security lawyers ensure appropriate communication about cyber risk and liability. He concludes by discussing a cyber security lawyer’s role in contracts, mergers, and acquisitions and offers tips for choosing a cyber security lawyer.
“In a business landscape dominated by evolving privacy laws, cloud migration and cyber incidents, organizations find that traditional law practices may not meet their needs,” stated Almi Dumi, CISO, eMazzanti Technologies. “By engaging a cyber security lawyer, however, they take a proactive approach to challenges related to information security and privacy issues.”
Below are a few excerpts from the article, “What is a Cyber Security Lawyer, and Do I Need One?”
“Cyberlaw includes the regulations, statutes, legislation, and litigation applicable to businesses and individuals interacting with technology on the internet. Consequently, cyber security lawyers play a critical role in managing the risk associated with those regulations.”
Regulatory Compliance and Risk Management
“Keeping track of a rapidly evolving regulatory landscape and ensuring regulatory compliance can prove tricky. A cyber security lawyer helps to mitigate risk by keeping abreast of regulatory changes and playing an active role in risk management. This includes directing risk assessments and making informed decisions about cyber insurance.”
Cyber Incident Preparedness and Response
“No business remains immune to cyber-attacks and security breaches. But a cyber security lawyer with experience in managing cyber security incidents will leverage that experience in guiding incident preparedness. This includes advising security strategy and playing an integral role in building an incident response plan.”
Contracts, Mergers and Acquisitions
“Any time an organization shares information with a third party, such as a vendor, they introduce risk. Hackers exploit connections along the supply chain, using smaller, less secure organizations as a back door into higher value targets. In response, privacy laws increasingly include requirements for vendor contracts.”
