WASHINGTON (March 17, 2015)— Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP is pleased to announce the launch of its newest blog, Cybersecurity and Privacy Insights, at sutherlandcybersecurity.com. The blog provides timely perspectives on the legal issues and regulatory developments surrounding cybersecurity, privacy and data security.    

Privacy and Data Security Team Leader Mark D. Herlach remarked, “These issues affect the critical infrastructure supporting the U.S. and global economies and require that we take a holistic view to serve our clients’ needs.” Mr. Herlach continued, “Since data breach has become a ‘when’ – not an ‘if’ – question, we are focused on risk reduction, cybersecurity preparedness, and timely response for our clients big and small.”

Sutherlandcybersecurity.com will serve as a central resource for compliance best practices, data breach resources, defensive measures, regulatory updates, enforcement actions, legislation, litigation developments, cybersecurity insurance coverage and other important developments.

“This blog, involving multiple practices and disciplines, serves as another excellent example of Sutherland’s collaborative approach to client service,” said Sutherland Managing Partner Mark D. Wasserman.

Sutherland’s Privacy and Data Security Team helps clients manage the obligations and risks of gathering, maintaining, processing and transferring personal information. The team’s hands-on business experience in managing information technology risk allows them to provide practical, business-focused counsel on all aspects of information policy, security, data storage and management, regulatory compliance and other cybersecurity matters.
