Cyber Security, Data Protection and Privacy

Cyber Security, Data Protection and Privacy

For businesses in Australia and worldwide, the potential reputational and financial risks associated with cyber security and data breach incidents are serious and very real.  Regulators are closely monitoring data protection and privacy law compliance on a global basis, and so are tech-savvy customers.  Cyber security is no longer just an IT issue, but must be proactively managed by organisations and their boards across all areas of their business.

How would your business stack up if you were facing a cyber security threat or under scrutiny by regulators?

Complete the Cyber Security Checklist and gain insights on how your business could improve.


Our team of leading experts work closely with businesses and utilise a seamless, multi-disciplinary approach to cover all aspects of cyber security, data breach and privacy, with legal experts in information technology, risk, intellectual property, cloud services, workplace relations, privacy and corporate laws.  We assist businesses with best practice protection, to create a proactive and preventative culture of cyber security and data protection that ensures compliance with applicable laws.  This includes responding, when you suspect there has been an incident and you need legal advice from investigation to implementation of incident response strategies, dealing with regulators and managing remedial obligations. 

We offer a range of fixed fee privacy packages that can help deliver peace of mind to your business.

  • Tailored incident response plans
