Protecting the security of corporate information assets is a matter of economic survival. When government information is involved, protecting sensitive technical information can also be a matter of national security. Information security is a fundamental requirement of many government contracts and an increasingly important selection criterion for government information systems.

We have been deeply involved in the Internet from its infancy, and are among the leading law firms in Internet and electronic commerce issues. Clients benefit from our experience in information security, certification and accreditation, data privacy and international data protection regulation.

We advise producers of information security software on emerging government contracting requirements and information security certification and accreditation standards.

  • We counsel software and electronic companies on policies and procedures for safeguarding sensitive government information.
  • We advise companies on international data transfer restrictions and implement appropriate safeguards, including contractual assurances, binding corporate rules and European Union privacy safe harbor self-certification.
  • We represent the Internet Engineering Task Force, which establishes important technical standards for global networking and e-commerce.
