Lewis Brisbois Cybersecurity Nominated for Three Advisen Cyber Risk Awards

New York, N.Y. (March 26, 2020) - Lewis Brisbois is pleased to announce that the Data Privacy & Cybersecurity Team has been nominated for three awards at Advisen's 2020 Cyber Risk Awards. The team was nominated for the “Cyber Risk Event Response Team of the Year," “Cyber Law Firm of the Year,” and "Cyber Service Provider of the Year." The team was previously nominated for two of these awards last year and took home the “2019 Cyber Law Firm of the Year” award.

The Cyber Risk Awards are the annual “people’s choice” awards for the cyber risk industry, recognizing the industry’s most influential professionals. The awards leverage Advisen’s vast contact database of insurance professionals involved in cyber risk issues. While most of the awards are voted on by the cyber insurance community, the "Cyber Service Provider of the Year" Award is one of two awards selected by Advisen's Cyber Commission, made up of past Cyber Conference Chairs and winners Advisen's Cyber Person of the Year Award. 

The “Cyber Risk Event Response Team of the Year” award honors a cyber services team with forensics, investigations, PR/communications and/or notification expertise that has offered outstanding support in the face of a 2019 cyber breach. The “Cyber Law Firm of the Year” award recognizes the firm that has been “unparalleled” in their cyber insurance work, providing pre- and post-breach coaching services and deciphering complex cyber laws and policies.

Here are just a few of the team’s recent highlights to consider when voting:

  • Responding to over 1,000 data security events annually, from simple data theft to complex and catastrophic data compromises. We regularly assist companies in every business sector to navigate both U.S. and foreign data regulations, including the CCPA and the GDPR.
  • Expanding our 24/7 Rapid Response Team to cover more regions than ever. Our diverse team includes two former U.S. Cyber attorneys and fifteen attorneys with CIPP/US and/or CIPP/E certifications.
  • Developing and deploying our Data Privacy & Cybersecurity app, publishing our Data Privacy & Cybersecurity handbook, consistently posting relevant and timely analysis on our Digital Insights blog, and maintaining our interactive online maps pertaining to state data breach notification statues and information security standards.

Additionally, the team provides a comprehensive suite of services to help clients protect their data and prevent breaches from ever happening.
