Cybersecurity for ADG Companies

Cybersecurity touches almost every aspect of a company’s operations. Companies in the aerospace, defense, and government services (ADG) sector can be subject to greater risks due to the industry's highly technical and sensitive nature – particularly when contractors act as repositories for government data – and face increased pressure to develop and implement robust cybersecurity practices. Safeguarding measures that were reasonable in the recent past are unlikely to meet regulators’ future expectations. 

Our top-tier cybersecurity team of experienced lawyers and technical professionals provides comprehensive legal, operational, and reputation risk management services to the ADG industry. We understand the legislative and regulatory landscape, and counsel numerous ADG companies on proactive measures they can take to manage legal and regulatory risks in this area.
