S&C Partner Nicole Friedlander Interviewed by DatabreachToday On Responding to a Data BreachDecember 6, 2019
S&C partner Nicole Friedlander, co-head of the Firm's Cybersecurity Group, was quoted in a recent DatabreachToday article on how organizations can recover from data breaches. Her advice: identify and plan in advance with the people who will need to be involved in the response. This includes not only the security team, but “counsel, compliance, senior management and the board,” as well as external parties such as outside counsel and forensic firms.
Nicky notes that there are other important steps companies can take to be prepared. “You can plan in advance to offer credit monitoring and to have hotlines to address people's questions, for example. You can identify the vendor you will use for those services, so you don't have to scramble to find one in a crisis. These are steps companies can take in advance, at little cost, to help limit harm if they have a breach.”
