          Cyber & Data Breach Response

          Cyber security is a real and growing issue. Organisations big and small are increasingly realising that it is something they cannot ignore.

          We help organisations develop clear and effective cyber and data security strategies, before, during and after any breach event - helping them to maintain regulatory compliance and reduce the risk of an infringement.

          Our team is equipped to provide a comprehensive range of cyber security and data breach response services, including acting as a point of contact, end-to-end cyber and data breach support and follow-up claims and litigation support.

          We showcase our breach response through three key pillars:

          • Risk Management and Preparedness
          • Breach Response
          • Claims & Litigation


          “Measuring how closely firms match up to what counts as best practice shows that in most organisations there is still some way to go when it comes to cyber preparedness.“
          Hiscox Cyber Readiness Report, 2019


          Why DWF

          Like us, our clients recognise that the world is changing fast and the old rules no longer apply. That’s why we’re always finding agile ways to tackle new challenges together. But we don’t simply claim to be different. We prove it through every detail of our work, across every level. We’re leading the way by adding value that goes beyond the traditional legal adviser role.

          Our Connected Services form an umbrella over a range of complementary specialist organisation solutions, as well as consultative services and products, that sit alongside DWF’s core legal offering. Each organisation within the division has been set up to offer a complete service designed to help clients better manage risk, reputation, cost, time and resources.
