Cyber intrusion and attacks have increased at an alarming rate in recent years. Twenty-first century data breaches involve sophisticated attacks on the network and information systems that form the infrastructural foundation of modern commercial and corporate activities for companies of all sizes and across industries. It’s no longer a question if a data breach will occur, but when.

Bracewell works with energy companies and utilities, retail companies, financial institutions, investment advisors, and local and state municipalities on developing and implement information security plans to mitigate and minimize risks. We also help insulate senior management from the regulatory and shareholder scrutiny that inevitably follows a breach.

Our team — which includes former prosecutors, seasoned civil litigators and strategic communications veterans — puts an emphasis on preemptive planning to streamline the time and expense of a response effort. We help companies put a response plan in place that can be implemented on a moment’s notice, including media and governmental outreach to reduce financial, regulatory and reputational repercussions.
