Laura Funk is a partner in the Dallas office of Lewis Brisbois and a member of the Data Privacy & Cybersecurity Practice. With more than a decade of experience in litigation and compliance, Laura provides counsel to clients through the data security incident response process – from conducting an initial assessment of the matter and developing a strategy for response to collaborating with third-party digital forensics and incident response firms – with the ultimate goal of ensuring clients are fully informed of their potential legal obligations under federal and state data breach notification statutes. Laura’s clients come from across many sectors, including healthcare, education, financial, industrial, and government. In addition to incident response services, Laura utilizes her HIPAA expertise to advise clients on best practices in healthcare privacy and security, which often includes policy and procedure development or revision, review of business associate and subcontractor privacy agreements, and assessment of current safeguards in place.
Prior to joining Lewis Brisbois, Laura served as the Privacy Officer and Senior Director of Compliance of a national healthcare business solutions organization, working closely with both covered entity clients and subcontractors. While there, Laura was a member of the Compliance leadership team and reported regularly to the Compliance and Audit Committee on incident investigations, trends, and risks. She also led a team of investigations officers, developed incident response and investigation protocols, and provided oversight to the consumer protection compliance program, in addition to managing the intake of new matters, and maintaining the suite of privacy policies and procedures.
