Data Privacy & Cyber Risk Management
Data Privacy and cyber liability are critical and distinct issues for today’s businesses. Cybercrime and data privacy breaches can put a company at risk of sustaining considerable financial losses.
Whether a company is a victim of a ransomware attack, data breach, or wire transfer fraud or has a network system failure, the operational disruption and unbudgeted expenses can be financially devastating. In addition to those expenses, reputational harm and ensuing legal action taken by customers, vendors, or others who have been adversely affected can equally affect the bottom line. The Righi Fitch cyber team understands the critical importance of taking immediate action and prides itself on swift responsiveness.
Righi Fitch Law Group focuses on the rapidly evolving cyber risks for clients across various industries, including, health care, education, non-profits, industrial, technology, retail, and professional service providers. Attorney Beth Fitch heads our cyber liability team. She is not only a founding member of Righi Fitch Law Group, but she serves as our firm’s Chief Information Security Officer. She is certified by the International Association of Privacy Professionals, the leading privacy credential in the U.S. and frequently counsels companies on cyber liability and how to respond to data breaches. She has several published works on cyber liability and is a recognized authority on this complex legal field.
