An organization that has experienced a data breach is often required to self-report to certain regulators. In addition, some laws allow regulators to launch investigations into an organization's systems and security practices even when there has not been a reported data breach.

An organization that has experienced a data breach is often required to self-report to certain regulators. In addition, some laws allow regulators to launch investigations into an organization’s systems and security practices even when there has not been a reported data breach. These investigations can take years, involve voluminous requests for documents and information, and result in lengthy and sometimes tense negotiations with regulators. The FMG Data Security, Privacy & Technology practice group is experienced in representing organizations with matters before state and federal regulators, including attorneys general, state agencies, the Federal Trade Commission, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Office for Civil Rights. Our attorneys also have represented many clients in credit card breaches, assisting with the response to the complex and often lengthy investigation done by the Payment Card Industry.
