Global Privacy & Cybersecurity Resource Center

Now more than ever, organizations must be focused on the privacy and security of the personal data they hold. Businesses in nearly all industries–from healthcare to financial institutions and from high-tech to brick-and-mortar retailers–are increasingly accelerating their digital transformation into Big Data players. At the same time, an increasingly complex landscape of US and international data privacy laws leaves a growing web of compliance uncertainties. The rapid shift to remote work due to the COVID-19 global pandemic has also created a ripe opportunity for cybercriminal actors to strike, leaving businesses vulnerable to expensive ransomware and other damaging cyberattacks.

McDermott’s premier Global Privacy & Cybersecurity team leads clients through the complex—and often unanticipated—regulatory, compliance and transactional challenges that govern their valuable data assets. Combining deep experience operating within highly regulated environments with a practical business-focused approach to navigating the rapidly evolving data privacy environment, we help clients develop creative solutions to regulatory obstacles and leverage their valuable data assets to drive change and innovation.
