Incident Response


White & Case assists clients with all aspects of cybersecurity and data breach incident response. This includes guiding internal teams in investigating and responding to the incident, leading investigations by third-party forensic firms, urgent civil and criminal legal action to protect the business, regulatory reporting and liaison, coordinating with the relevant criminal authorities, responding to regulatory inquiries, complying with notification requirements to individuals and business partners, and developing a strategy to minimize the risk of legal claims against the business.

The vast majority of cybersecurity/data breaches require advice across several jurisdictions, where approaches to regulatory reporting and incident management can vary significantly. The Firm's global presence helps clients navigate this landscape and devise a practical and proactive international response strategy that protects the underlying business and reduces potential liability and exposure.
