Privacy & Data Security



The legal and business risks associated with non-compliance to privacy and data security have grown significantly, and U.S. and international privacy and data protection standards have grown complex. The attorneys in Burns & Levinson’s Privacy and Data Security group have the skill, certifications and experience to help companies prevent, detect and respond to cyber and data breaches. We help clients achieve compliance with existing regulations and anticipate new rules from the U.S. (state and federal) and international data protection authorities and private organization standards. We will work with you in real time to guide you to design and implement practical measures for compliance and operational effectiveness.

Our cost-effective approach helps clients avoid violation of consumer and employee privacy laws while implementing successful privacy compliance and business security solutions. Working closely with clients’ technology and risk executives, we identify risks, fortify compliance and implement solutions to protect personal and proprietary data and systems. Clients appreciate that we tailor our scope to their geographic and industry segment needs. It is important to provide services that can be scaled from a business in a single state or country to the wider patchwork of national and international privacy laws. Our team draws from across the firm to address corporate, technology, employment and compliance needs.

When a breach occurs, our response, and that of our trusted network of resources, is rapid and thorough to aid clients in proper, quick reaction to minimize disruptions and provide a fast return to business as normal.

We advise clients on the full spectrum of privacy and data protection concerns, including: regulatory and legal compliance; privacy policies; best practices and procedures; data security breaches; regulatory audits and investigations; international data transfers; training programs and litigation.
