The protection of personal data and information is one of the most important concerns facing companies and organizations today. Advancements in technology, coupled with the vast storage capacity of digital media, heighten the importance of implementing comprehensive measures to protect against loss, criminal interception and misuse.
The CSG Law Privacy & Data Security Team understands the risks clients face in connection with financial, health and other personal information security issues – and, in the event of the breach, work closely alongside colleagues from the firm’s specialized industry groups to develop, implement and execute comprehensive response and recovery plans that meet each client’s specific needs, timeline and industry standards.
It is also imperative that companies know what action is needed to comply with new – and much stricter – international, federal and state regulations that define procedures, responsibilities and liability for personal information security and theft. Advising on regulations such as Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) and the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), our attorneys are at the cutting edge of issues of emerging concern and proactively counsel clients to avoid serious financial risk and legal repercussions.
Our privacy and data security attorneys are regularly engaged by clients varying in size from closely-held businesses to Fortune 500 corporations operating across a diverse range of industries – including professional services, healthcare, manufacturing, construction, real estate, finance and banking.

- Federal and state regulatory compliance
