Cole Schotz P.C.


Privacy & Data Security


Whether you are carefully planning ahead, or were just jolted out of bed because your company’s computer system was attacked, Cole Schotz privacy and cybersecurity specialists can help.

In a world where most business is transacted electronically, often across state and country boundaries, it has become increasingly challenging for companies to navigate their data privacy obligations or protect themselves against cybercrime. Cole Schotz provides the guidance clients need so they can focus on doing business.

Jumble, web, maze – these are just a few of the words used to describe the data privacy legal compliance landscape. We help clients get out of the maze, working with business and technical stakeholders to ensure the company understands their obligations and associated risks, and provide efficient compliance strategies to address each client’s unique circumstances.

When it comes to protecting against data stability and security risks, advance preparation and the ability to respond rapidly are critical factors in the extent of damage a company suffers. Cole Schotz works with clients to develop risk avoidance and mitigation strategies. We help clients implement procedures and develop relationships to reduce their vulnerability should the worst happen, such as through insurance evaluation, cyberattack response team planning and creation of response plans tailored to their unique circumstances.

Some of the services we provide include:

  • conducting privacy audits
