Earlier this month, global law firm Clyde & Co launched its newly established APAC Cyber Risk Advisory practice, in a move that further strengthens the firm’s cyber incident response and digital law team in Australia. The new offering is to address the rapidly increasing client demand resulting from heightened pressure on organisations to continually improve their cybersecurity position.
Recognising the growing demand for cyber, privacy and digital advice, Chris McLaughlin, a leading cyber risk advisor and his team will work with clients to bolster their cyber resilience to minimise the potential of incidents occurring and reduce the possibilities of financial, operational and reputational damages occurring.
Clyde & Co’s cyber practice provides an end-to-end cyber risk solution to clients covering transactions, innovations, pre-incident readiness and incident response through to regulatory investigations, proceedings, third party claims (including group litigation) and recoveries.
John Moran, Partner, Co-Head Global Cyber Practice, Sydney, says, “Organisations across Australia and New Zealand are facing ever-rising expectations when it comes to being ready for, responding to and recovering from cyber incidents."
Chris comments, “As the cyber risk landscape continues to evolve, it’s more important than ever for organisations to be targeted in their approach to uplifting their security. I’m looking forward to working with our clients to help them prioritise security-enhancing activities that are pragmatic and help them get the most out of their security investment.”
The Australian cyber team has previously advised on more than 2,000 cyber incidents and data breaches, ranging from small incidents to some of the largest, most high profile, and multi-jurisdictional incidents to date.
