News / July 5, 2017

Partner Ted Kobus is featured in a question-and-answer article published on Westlaw’s Practitioner Insights/Data Privacy page on July 3, 2017. In the feature, “BakerHostetler Builds SWAT Team for Ransomware Outbreaks,” Kobus discusses how the Privacy and Data Protection team has mobilized to swiftly help clients affected by ransomware attacks.

Kobus told Westlaw: “We can immediately guide the company to determine the best approach with these issues. We do not take over, but we provide informed guidance so that the best path is selected. For example, a company may benefit from knowing that specific division of law enforcement is already involved in dozens of other investigations.”
