Privacy

Cyber risk and liability are now paramount concerns for every organization, enterprise, and their insurers.  The internet has revolutionized the way we conduct business and led to the dramatic rise in the volume of data being transmitted and handled electronically.  The ever-changing cyber, technological, and legal landscapes means businesses need experienced and specially-trained professionals on their side. 

At Selman Breitman, our Cyber Law group provides high-quality representation to clients anywhere in the United States.  We use innovative legal strategies and draw upon our wealth of knowledge of data privacy laws to advise businesses on compliance with state and federal data privacy laws.  We also work closely with our clients to develop client-specific policies to manage emerging risks, conduct data privacy risk assessments, review insurance policies to analyze coverage, and litigate civil lawsuits involving privacy issues. 

Further, the firm's vast resources and great expertise in the insurance field continue to serve and advise insurers concerning coverage issues arising out of new cyber insurance products and GL forms.

Experienced and Trained Cyber Liability Professionals

Although many law firms claim expertise in this new area, few actually have trained professionals.  Selman Breitman has attorneys with substantial Cyber liability experience, including with specific training on U.S. private-sector privacy laws and regulations and the legal requirements for the responsible transfer of sensitive personal data to/from the U.S., the EU and other jurisdictions.  We also have counsel who earned the ANSI-accredited Certified Information Privacy Professional/United States (CIPP/US) credential through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). 

The IAPP is the first organization to publicly establish standards in professional education and testing for privacy and data protection.  The IAPP privacy certification is internationally recognized as a reputable, independent program.  The CIPP was developed and launched by the IAPP with leading subject matter experts and is the world's first broad-based global privacy and data protection credentialing program.  It is the global standard in privacy certification.
