Data, Privacy and Security

King & Spalding’s Data, Privacy and Security (DPS) team counsels clients on a broad range of legal issues faced by multinational organizations, including global privacy programs, data protection and cybersecurity assessments, crisis management in responding to internal and external privacy and data security incidents, health information governance and compliance, and defending clients in regulatory enforcement proceedings and class action litigation. The team consists of “boots on the ground” crisis managers, technical professionals, former government lawyers, and litigators to manage and coordinate fast-moving and complex investigations and logistics during and after an incident. We assist clients with preparing for, responding to, and recovering from data privacy and security incidents.

The King & Spalding DPS practice is best known for:

  • Experienced crisis and security incident response managers;
  • Former government lawyers who balance the demands of cooperating with law enforcement, responding to regulator investigations, and vigorously defending enforcement actions when necessary;
  • Bona fide trial attorneys with track records of successfully defending data breach and privacy class actions and litigation; and
  • Seasoned counselors and technical professionals who apply the “real world” to data privacy and cybersecurity governance.
