Tech pundits began in 2015 asking whether small and large businesses needed the counsel of a law firm well-versed in cybersecurity. “Developing plans to protect digital information and networks while complying with state and federal regulations can be a legal challenge for any corporation,” mentions Kacy Zurkus in this August 2015 CSO article. “Is relying on in-house counsel enough, or should companies have a cybersecurity attorney on retainer?”
Fast forward to 2018, and even more tech pundits suggest that retaining legal counsel familiar with cybersecurity is vital for a company’s well-being.
