Data Privacy & Security
Carmody helps companies navigate the increasingly complex environment surrounding the collection, use, and protection of corporate and personal data. Our team understands the risks and benefits of the technologies of the digital economy, such as social media, the cloud, IoT, and data analytics tools. We advise clients on how to shield their brand and build trust with customers and business partners.
Understanding the landscape is complex and each client has unique risks and goals, Carmody aims to make the process manageable and economical for the client team. We learn what sensitive information is a part of our client’s business and how it is used. We help the client prioritize its most pressing risks. We customize policies and practices to mitigate costly data breaches and privacy violations. We ensure that contractual arrangements protect the integrity, availability, and security of sensitive information and transfer risk appropriately to service providers and insurers. In the event sensitive data is lost or misappropriated, we work with our clients to mitigate potential exposure by managing required reporting to regulators, communicating appropriately with affected individuals, and, when necessary, by litigation.
