Nathan Garrett Shares Insights on Cybersecurity in LegalTech News
Graves Garrett Partner Nathan Garrett was recently featured as a guest author in LegalTech News, sharing his insight on recent updates in the world of cybersecurity in an article titled, “Game of Threats: Cybercrime Takes a Bite Out of the Bottom Line.”
Data breaches at national corporations like Anthem, Blue Cross and Sony, just to name a few, have begun to secure a regular spot among headline news. And as cybercrime becomes even more sophisticated, company executives need to be prepared, reports Garrett. The federal government has also declared cybersecurity to be a top national priority and has put forth numerous initiatives to promote enhanced cybersecurity among both government and private entities.
“Effectively responding to the threat of breaches, as well as to the new regulations, comes down to creating a comprehensive cybersecurity policy that addresses planning, preparing and reacting to breaches,” according to Garrett’s article. “It’s no longer a matter of ‘if’ your company will suffer a breach; it’s a matter of ‘when.’ And when the time comes, you’ll need to demonstrate that you took appropriate and responsible actions to protect your and your customers’ data.”
As a former federal prosecutor serving as Chief of the National Security and Terrorism Section in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Missouri, and as a former FBI special agent who worked on a wide range of federal crimes including cyber fraud, Garrett is regularly sought for his experience and breadth of knowledge on cybersecurity and the quickly emerging liability faced by data holders.
