Technology, Cyber and eDiscovery
Legal Services for Your Technology, Cyber, and eDiscovery Needs
It takes a Team.
Advances in technology have positively impacted business and government. To remain competitive and productive, both private and public institutions have had to adopt technology. Benefits and advancements, however, go hand in hand with risks and challenges. Cybersecurity, therefore, is no longer an issue that affects only “big” business. Everyone is vulnerable, no matter your size or industry. In fact, press coverage reminds each of us of the costs associated with advancing technology, without giving adequate consideration to security as it relates to email, unprotected personal devices, unencrypted data, and weak firewalls, just to name a few.
To thoughtfully address the full spectrum of technology issues, a Team, which includes lawyers, forensic technology experts, law enforcement, and not-for-profits, is required.
Accomplished Technology Attorneys
Carter Conboy’s Team includes members who started their careers in information technology, as well as those who served in the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and New York State Police. With this technical, legal, regulatory, and law enforcement perspective, our attorneys understand the inner workings of the system, and the external, reputational risks of a breach. While others will tout their experience, our Team has the experience and relationships to comprehensively address any technical problem or policy. While others show up after a breach, our Team will implement policies, procedures, and training to minimize the likelihood that one will ever occur.
