Data Privacy & Cybersecurity

HBS works alongside businesses of all sizes and across industries to safeguard data, protect privacy, identify potential weaknesses and reduce the likelihood of breaches.



As businesses continue to increase their use and storage of personal information and other data, it is more important than ever that businesses assess how they manage and control their data. HBS can assist with the preparation and implementation of proactive compliance plans not only to comply with relevant privacy laws and regulations but also to work towards a Strategic Privacy by Design plan for your business.

HBS can provide you with proactive strategies to reduce the likelihood of a security breach along with remedies to reduce your loss exposure should your data be compromised. We have a team of data privacy and cybersecurity attorneys throughout our offices to work with clients throughout the country.


Electronic transfer of data and “cloud computing” reach across geographical boundaries in the global marketplace. While most jurisdictions have some level of data privacy laws, these laws can vary widely from one state or country to another. This creates a maze of compliance and privacy risk issues.

HBS can identify the data privacy laws applicable to your business, and develop a proactive plan to comply with these laws.

Specifically, HBS can assist with:

  • National compliance programs and policies to address CCPA, Colorado Privacy Act, Virginia Consumer Data Privacy Act, HIPAA, NY SHIELD Act, PCI-DSS, COPPA and GLBA.
  • International compliance programs and policies to address GDPR, PIPEDA and the national data privacy laws of many other countries.
  • Website and mobile application privacy compliance.
  • vDPO services.
  • Data subject access and opposition rights.
  • Audits and data mapping.
  • Drafting and negotiation of all manner of technology contracts.
Strategic Privacy by Design

It is no longer enough to reactively implement compliance measures when laws and regulations are passed. By implementing a Strategic Privacy by Design program in your business, we address privacy proactively by incorporating privacy requirements with your business strategy. At HBS we believe businesses can achieve their goals while maintaining the privacy of personal information.
