Herbert Smith Freehills has launched a new Cyber Security Hotline to help clients keep their online security in-check.

The firm is providing clients, who sign up to the initiative, with five hours of cyber advice per month and direct access to the Hotline, which they can access in any time-zone across the firm's global network.

In the first instance, clients can either telephone one of our cyber security team directly, or can email the hotline with any questions they may have, including:

  • cyber security policies and procedures, including incident response planning, training and education
  • regulatory compliance (such as financial services regulation and data protection)
  • procurement and supply chain risk (contractor vetting and cyber contractual provisions)
  • employment law, insurance, health & safety and product liability issues
  • responding to incidents, such as regulatory notifications and reporting, best practice for working with regulators and law enforcement, and recovery of assets
  • cyber security issues in the context of corporate due diligence, joint ventures, projects work and outsourcing

By using the hotline, clients will be able to tap directly into the firm's global cyber security expertise. Clients will be able to get advice on issues wherever they may arise and simultaneously across multiple jurisdictions.

There are 26 partners in the firm's Global Cyber Security Practice, drawn from our offices in the UK, US, Europe, Middle East, Asia and Australia. The practice covers three main areas: before-the-event cyber risk management and advisory; incident response; and cyber advice in the context of non-contentious transactional and project work.

Andrew Moir, Head of the Herbert Smith Freehills' Global Cyber Security Practice, said:

"Cyber security is one of the most pressing issues facing companies worldwide. To help clients tackle these concerns, we have launched a hotline to give clients quick and convenient access to our global cyber security team.  Our clients benefit from having our specialist team on-hand for their day-to-day queries, without having to worry about setting up individual retainers."
