Data Breach Response

We assisted a large company in responding to a data breach involving the inadvertent disclosure of information by a third party vendor. The company's vendor disclosed personal information for over 1,500 individuals when the vendor transmitted data to a second vendor. The affected individuals resided in 42 different states and 1 foreign country. We advised our client regarding its federal and state reporting and notification obligations, negotiated a coordinated response with the vendors involved, prepared incident reports for state agencies, and provided assistance in moving the vendor's investigation to completion. We also advised our client as to best practices in responding to a breach, helped design a communications strategy, and prepared notification letters to affected individuals.
