Clyde & Co launches cyber crime offering

Clyde & Co has today announced the launch of a new end-to-end international offering to help organisations manage and respond to cyber risk.

Named One, the new offering puts legal expertise at heart of the fight against cyber criminals and helps organisations respond to cyber threats and build their resilience.

The One network is led by three Clyde & Co partners specialising in cyber risk, liability and litigation: Helen Bourne and Ian Birdsey based in the UK and John Moran based in Australia. They are supported by over 40 Clyde & Co partners around the world and their teams, who have combined experience in managing over 4,000 cyber events.

Clients will be able to reach the One network 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week via global telephone hotlines and email.

Bourne said: “Clyde & Co has developed a global team of cyber experts over several years. Every business sector in every country is facing an ever-increasing risk of being targeted by cyber criminals and we wanted to consolidate our global expertise into a solution that would meet clients’ needs and demands. That has led to us creating the concept of One as – a complete cyber solution led by expert lawyers and supported by a range of trusted vendor experts – a single phone call that will provide immediate access to a complete range of cyber specialists wherever they may be needed globally. Launching One, and making the solution readily accessible, represents an exciting opportunity for us to help clients manage one of the most challenging issues facing their business.

Ian Birdsey added: “The fight against cyber threats is much more than a technical challenge. Legal issues lie at the very heart of this and should drive the response. Today’s cyber-attack is very different to that of five years ago. As organisations have learned how to respond, so criminals have learned how to keep ahead in the game. Their attacks have evolved in both complexity and severity.

“We’ve seen also cyber-related litigation bloom into one of the most challenging areas of international law. We only have to look at the rise of class actions like those previously brought against Google, TikTok and Facebook. Legal expertise goes hand-in-hand with cyber incident management, which is why Clyde & Co, a globally integrated law firm, is the right first point of contact to manage these issues for clients.”
