About Our Cybersecurity Data Governance Practice

Law & Forensics Cybersecurity Governance practice recognizes that organizations today are confronting new cybersecurity statutes, regulations, and controls on a near-daily basis and our practice assists companies in this process.

Law & Forensics has a great deal of experience working with companies to protect against threats, but we also recognize that a company must know what data to protect.

Law & Forensics recognizes that securing data is at the core of cybersecurity, but that it is impossible for an organization to protect it’s data if it does not know what data it has, where it is, how it is used, who it is shared with, etc. Our Data Governance Cybersecurity practice has decades of experience assisting companies in creating a data governance program that allows them to secure and manage their data in a structured, responsible, and legal fashion.
