LANSING, Mich. – October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month and the number of reported data breaches and other cybersecurity issues are higher than ever. To help organizations facing these ordeals, Foster Swift Collins & Smith has launched a Cybersecurity Hotline: (517) 371-8275. The Hotline will provide callers (businesses, municipalities and other organizations) with quick access to experienced cybersecurity attorneys to assist in controlling potential threats.
Cybersecurity and data protection are issues of increasing concern that are not limited to corporations, financial institutions, health care and other large entities. Cybersecurity incidents and data breaches frequently cause significant expense and reputational harm to organizations, involve important legal obligations, and can result in costly lawsuits and regulatory investigations.
“We are launching this hotline to serve as a resource for organizations that are experiencing or suspect a cybersecurity incident or breach and need immediate assistance,” said Foster Swift attorney John Mashni. "Hackers are becoming more advanced than ever before and it is often not a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’ an incident will occur."
Foster Swift attorneys will quickly respond to inquiries regarding data breach concerns, work with your technology team to help mitigate risk, collaborate with your communications team to minimize negative public relations, and keep breach-related costs controlled.
The hotline’s main contacts will be Cybersecurity attorneys Taylor Gast and John Mashni. For assistance regarding a cybersecurity incident or data breach, dial the Hotline at (517) FS1-TASK or 371-8275.
