Privacy & Cybersecurity

The privacy and cybersecurity practice at Gravel & Shea is a multi-disciplinary team that provides strategic advice to clients of all sizes on privacy-related issues impacting all aspects of their business.

Prevention and Compliance

We provide actionable advice to companies seeking to manage their exposure in the event of a security breach. We also advise businesses on best practices to reduce vendor-side risk.

We work with clients to develop comprehensive policies relating to the handling, storing and safeguarding of customer and employee information. We also advise clients on their compliance obligations under the CCPA, the GDPR, federal securities law and state and federal employment laws.

In addition, we assist clients with identifying the type of cybersecurity insurance coverage appropriate for their overall business needs.

Data Breach Response

In the event of a data breach, we work with local, state and federal law agencies and information security professionals to timely comply with reporting requirements and to mitigate the negative impact on clients’ businesses, employees and customers.

Investigations and Litigation

Our litigation team works with clients in the aftermath of a data breach. We counsel clients on internal investigations, regulatory inquiries and all types of data breach related claims, including trade secret theft and consumer and employee claims.
