Baker Marquart is a leader in the field. We understand the perils of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) and related federal crimes. As an example, the firm represents Marcus Hutchins, who is worldwide hero due to his assistance in stopping the “WannaCry” ransomware attack in May 2017, in a prosecution based out of the Eastern District of Wisconsin for alleged cyber-related crimes dating back to 2014-15.
We also understand the ever-evolving threats to company IT systems, and related cyber-regulatory efforts by governments that are significant challenges to companies everywhere. We have experience working with federal agencies involved in cybersecurity issues, like the FBI. Companies regularly come to us to help respond to and report cybersecurity events.
We handle defense of actions, inquiries, and investigations by the FBI, FTC, HHS, OCR, FCC, state Attorneys General, and financial regulators. We also handle security breach investigation and related incident response and crisis management.
