DETROIT, April 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- McDonald Hopkins, a business advisory and advocacy law firm, has once again been nominated by Advisen as a finalist for their 2020 Cyber Risk Awards in the category of Cyber Law Firm of the Year. For more than a decade, the Data Privacy and Cybersecurity team at McDonald Hopkins has counseled clients in responding to over 5,000 data breaches and privacy incidents throughout the world and in nearly every industry. In 2019, the team responded to nearly 700 incidents.
Voting is now open through Friday, April 24 via Advisen's online ballot. The winners will be announced on June 18 at Gotham Hall in New York City.
The Cyber Risk Awards are selected by "People's Choice" vast contact database of insurance professionals who care about Cyber Risk. Cyber Law Firm of the Year recognizes a law firm that has been unparalleled in its work within the cyber insurance space in 2019. This year will mark the 7th annual Cyber Risk Awards.
"Breaches can be devastating not only for a company's bottom line, but also for their reputation," Giszczak said. "Organizations are now judged on their response to the breach, rather than the incident itself."
"While no industry or business is immune to cybersecurity incidents, it is crucial for businesses to have a proper plan in place, knowledge of regulations and effective and efficient legal support ready to respond to an incident 24/7," added Paluzzi.
More information on the 2020 Cyber Risk Awards can be found on Advisen's website.
