Responding to a security breach requires a team effort to effectively mitigate the damages. In addition to the legal and regulatory implications of counseling, Pearl CyberPro is affiliated with a group of industry leaders to assist in investigating the breach and designing and implementing a response plan.
Our team consists of the following groups:
Security auditors at forensic firms
Our partners will identify the source and scope of the data breach. If necessary, the firm will aid in the recovery, restoration, or replacement of your information and software, as well as the removal of the hacker’s tools, including Trojan horses, viruses, or worms. Even prior to a breach, our partners have the expertise to ensure that your firm is in compliance with ethical and legal cyber security requirements.
Public relations agencies
We use public relations agencies with extensive experience in addressing the specific needs of law firms. These agencies will advise on, design, implement, and execute a tailored public response to your firm's breach.
Our partners will help you draft and deliver notifications to required customers, clients, opposing counsels, courts, state attorney generals, law enforcement officials, and credit bureaus.
Credit and internet monitoring
Few things are as worrisome as the disclosure of personal, corporate, or financial information. Our partners will put the minds of those affected at ease by helping you procure credit and internet monitoring services to alert you if nonpublic personal information has fallen into the wrong hands. Moreover, we partner with identity theft insurance companies to take a proactive approach in mitigating the damages resulting from a breach.
Crisis communication call centers
Depending on the size and scope of your breach, it may be necessary to bring in outside resources to help handle the calls from those affected. These professionals will familiarize themselves with the breach, and train the people who answer calls to ensure your public image is maintained.
Forensic accounting and loss valuation firms
A security breach will not only divert an attorney’s attention away from their clients' immediate needs, but it may also completely prevent them from accessing files and documents. Both situations limit an attorney’s billable hours. Our expert partners will help you determine the value of the economic loss caused by a security breach or data loss.
