What's the Cost of Not Keeping a Secret?

From missing laptops and USB drives to anonymous computer hackers and cyber terrorists, data breaches are on the rise. In the midst of a data breach, when the security of critical information and potentially millions—or even billions—of dollars are at risk, you want the team that has the knowledge and experience to act decisively and efficiently. That’s why businesses and healthcare institutions call BakerHostetler’s Privacy and Data Protection Team.

This team has handled more than 170 breaches alone this year, with attorneys available 24/7 through its Data Breach Hotline.

When global retailers and hospitality service providers are required to retain a PCI Forensics Investigator (PFI), they call BakerHostetler to lead the response and oversee the investigation and discussions with the card brands. Our representation often continues if there is litigation--we have defended over 25 privacy class action matters.

When premier health systems and academic medical centers lose control of patient information, BakerHostetler is called to provide critical assistance with breach analysis, federal and state notification obligations, crisis management, investigation of the incident, regulatory compliance, resolution of patient complaints and response to regulatory investigations. We have handled three of the largest healthcare breaches ever announced and have defended dozens of Department of Human Services Office for Civil Rights investigations.

Education institutions can face significant fallout from students, parents, Attorneys General, and the Department of Education. BakerHostetler lawyers have guided them to achieve the best outcome. Our lawyers recognize that it is your brand at stake, and we can give you the advice you need because we have handled hundreds of privacy events.

Financial institutions call on BakerHostetler when a simple stolen lap top or sophisticated network intrusion expose customer information. We manage their forensic investigations and customer notification obligations while limiting the impact from state and federal regulatory investigations.

In the high-stakes world of data security and compliance, BakerHostetler’s Data and Privacy Protection Team is your team.
