Data Privacy & Cybersecurity

Carrington Coleman’s Data Privacy and Cybersecurity lawyers advise clients on a broad range of data privacy, protection, and information security issues. We recognize that, in the ordinary course of business, companies routinely generate, collect, and transmit vast amounts of sensitive data. We also recognize that managing this data and protecting it from unauthorized or inadvertent disclosure has become an increasingly difficult task. The difficulty of ensuring the protection of your company’s most sensitive information is compounded by the rapidly changing legal and technological landscape. The attorneys in our Data Privacy and Cybersecurity group regularly advise clients on the collection, storage, and transmission of sensitive data under various state and federal laws. We assist clients with compliance matters, internal investigations, and litigation relating to data privacy and security. Our experience and knowledge covers a wide-range of industries, including the healthcare, financial, and communications sectors. Our attorneys are prepared to help clients safeguard their sensitive data, minimize risk, and effectively respond to data breach incidents.

Sara Romine, a member of the firm’s Data Privacy and Cybersecurity group, has earned the Certified Information Privacy Professional/United States (CIPP/US) credential through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). The CIPP/US certification demonstrates knowledge of U.S. private-sector privacy laws and regulations and understanding of the legal requirements for the collection, storage, and transfer of sensitive personal data. In addition, Ms. Romine is actively involved in the Sedona Conference Working Group 11 on Data Security and Data Privacy, as well as other professional organizations devoted to data security and privacy issues.

The Data Privacy and Cybersecurity group also routinely draws on the expertise of Carrington Coleman’s other practice groups, including its healthcare, securities, employment, and insurance groups.
