Cybersecurity, Data Privacy, eDiscovery
Don’t drown in big data.
Our experience at the intersection of business, IT, and legal helps you navigate data lakes and minimize risk.
The explosion of data over the past 20 years has resulted in major explicit and implicit costs for business.
More data means higher hosting costs, more expensive responses to litigation and investigations, and more potential entry points for threat actors into your network. Proteus Discovery Group, our eDiscovery services firm, was founded to help businesses get a handle on their data.
Our proactive information governance policies help clients identify data that has business value and data that must be kept for regulatory reasons; we design defensible destruction policies for everything else. During litigation and regulatory investigations, we help you identify what is relevant and what is protected by attorney-client privilege. And after a data breach, we can identify Personally Identifiable Information and HIPAA data and ensure you maintain compliance by developing required disclosure programs.
Let’s get started.
