Who do Pitmans' Cyber Risk Management lawyers work for?

As organisations become ever-more reliant on cyberspace to transact, store and/or disseminate confidential and proprietary information, they are increasingly vulnerable to cyber threats. A breach in a business’s security can expose it to fraud, data loss, intellectual property theft, brand damage, regulatory sanctions and third party liability. Cyber risk management has therefore been recognised for a number of years now as essential to business security.

We work for a wide range of clients from all sectors – anyone who uses data as part of their business- including:

  • Branding, marketing and communications agencies;
  • Charities and trusts;
  • Defence & security companies;
  • Private individuals – celebrities, sports stars, high achievers;
  • Manufacturers;
  • Media & entertainment companies;
  • Membership bodies & associations;
  • Private investors;
  • Property, construction & engineering companies;
  • Research & development organisations;
  • Retailers;
  • Sports bodies, clubs and associations;
  • Technology suppliers and customers;
  • Insurance, assurance and brokers.
