Data breach and theft


A data breach has become one of the biggest threats to our reputation.

The more connected our lives become, the more entry and exit points we create for hackers, ex-employees, or cyber-criminals to steal our data.

Anyone could be a victim of a data breach - an individual, a family office or a global business; it’s not the size of the organisation that makes it a target but the sensitivity and value of the data that it holds.

When a data breach does occur, time is of the essence.

What we can do

In a data breach crisis, Schillings’ multidisciplinary team can provide a holistic solution – and fast.

Our cybersecurity and forensics experts can help cap the data loss – whilst our specialist investigators look to find out who is behind it.

Our lawyers will conduct a regulatory risk assessment, review the volume, type and sensitivity of data lost and liaise with the regulators. They will also help you navigate the process of communicating with those whose data has been lost.

But we don’t just help manage the breach itself. Our leading reputation lawyers also advise on any reputational damage, so you can deal with the breach and any reputational fallout with one team of experts. And being a 24/7 service, we’re always on hand, whatever the crisis.
