“Privacy and Cybersecurity Laws are Tricky, So Digital Edge has an In-House Cyber Law Attorney To Assist”

The big IT problem facing many companies today is the recent explosive growth in privacy and cybersecurity laws they must comply with. Most of these companies do not have an in-house privacy and cybersecurity attorney who can help them understand these laws and regulations which are riddled with legal jargon and terms of art that require a legal professional to interpret properly. Leaving it to an IT generalist or even the CISO or CIO is hardly taking reasonable steps to comply with these requirements, and that could mean serious consequences going forward in the form of governmental fines, private civil actions, or in some cases even criminal charges.

Furthermore, even if a company hires outside counsel to advise them on cyber law compliance, the attorney in charge will not be part of a team of experienced in-house cybersecurity experts who can advise on (or even directly implement and configure) all technology needed for compliance. The compliance experience will likely be a long complicated slog with all people involved struggling to translate their respective disciplines to the other in a way everyone can understand.
Digital Edge solves all this by having closely integrated cybersecurity compliance and cybersecurity technology teams. I am a cyber law attorney with over 10 years hands-on IT experience. This means I am able to act as a reliable keystone bridging the legal world with the tech world by simplifying and condensing legal mandates into concrete directions that can be immediately understood and/or implemented by any IT staff. It also means that I can easily understand the issues faced from the technology perspective and provide immediate answers or solutions in the language of technology.
For a very reasonable price, Digital Edge will bring all of its resources to bear to first determine which laws apply to your company, and then get your company fully compliant with all of them.
