Giving You The Tools To Resolve Cybersecurity Issues

Cybersecurity law is extremely complex and constantly evolving. Virtually every company is subject to federal or state law and regulation — or both — in one way or another. We help you design comprehensive cybersecurity management plans that both meet your specific regulatory requirements and protect against cyber liability, fines, and penalties.

Berenzweig Leonard’s Cybersecurity practice encompasses all elements of data security and privacy for both U.S. and international clients. We have developed a national reputation for our ability to address complex our data security matters, from helping our clients prepare for and avoid data breaches to rapidly and effectively responding to them when they do occur.

Drawing From Our Vast Experience To Customize Your Strategy

Berenzweig Leonard enjoys a special advantage over other firms because of our deep experience in government contracting, technology law, and litigation, including white collar criminal defense. We track new FARs and DFARs and assist clients in performing a holistic analysis of their cyber exposure so that the rules flow down to subcontractors and cloud providers, even for commercial items.

Beyond technical IT defense considerations, the huge spike in phishing and spear-phishing attacks have put a renewed focus on employee policies and procedures and employee awareness training. We incorporate data security and privacy policies into our standard employee handbooks and policies, but these rules must be customized to the specific security and operating principles adopted by the client.

Helping You Navigate A Complex Landscape Effectively

At Berenzweig Leonard, our role is to help our clients navigate this complex landscape. True cybersecurity protection is not a one-time event — it is a continuous process of security monitoring and defense.
