Regulatory Compliance Services for an Ever-Evolving World
Ensuring secure, compliant, and efficient information governance.
Information is, in many ways, as much a currency of the modern world as capital itself, especially in the legal arena. Law firms and corporate legal departments that work with Epiq know they must always be able to share it at a moment's notice, even when clients are operating on an enterprise scale across multiple regions, nations or even continents. That wealth of information, and its transferability, does come with a price: It must be kept safe at all costs, particularly in light of the growing prevalence of data breaches and cyberattacks.
There's a tight line that must be walked: Many records have to be protected not only for the sake of comprehensiveness and posterity but also to meet any relevant compliance requirements. Organizations additionally have a responsibility to identify and remediate potential wrongdoing. Yet the sheer volume of enterprise-scale data sometimes means deletion is necessary to make room for new data. Epiq boasts 85+ years of combined experience, unparalleled ingenuity and cutting-edge technologies to provide regulatory compliance services that appropriately address the governance, compliance and security challenges faced by today's law firms and corporate legal teams.

Cyber Incident Response
While it is not guaranteed that every organization will experience a data breach of some kind at a certain point, the odds are high enough to necessitate significant precautions. This planning must include contingencies for notifying anyone affected by a breach of your business: The GDPR requires organizations to inform potential breach victims no more than 72 hours after learning of such incidents, and numerous U.S. states are deliberating similar requirements.
Turning to Epiq for your data breach response needs means partnering with the industry leader in swift notification — less than five days guaranteed, with rush service available for situations requiring it (i.e., breaches of GDPR-protected information). We take a managed-services approach to data breach notification, serving as a one-stop-shop for all tasks essential to the consumer-alert process: data acquisition and research, forms, noticing and contact center setup and support.
Even when individuals affected by breaches are promptly informed, a hack can nonetheless result in a negotiated settlement to preclude the judgment of a class-action lawsuit. Epiq can shoulder this administrative burden as well with legal noticing, claims processing and disbursement of any appropriate remedy or compensation.
In cybersecurity, the best cure is prevention — and Epiq's records management and compliance experts are fully on board with working preemptively to minimize the likelihood of a breach. We vet our own security processes according to industry-leading standards, stage mock-breach scenarios to give an impression of the actual experience and build templates and project plans so that clients are forewarned and forearmed to protect their essential records.
