Cybersecurity Law Firm

In today’s technology-driven world, cybersecurity preparedness is not optional. Both small and large businesses are vulnerable to data breaches and must have a robust plan in place to protect data, respond to cyberattacks, and address regulatory obligations in the event of a breach.

My firm exists to safeguard your business’ reputation in an ever-changing marketplace. With my in-depth legal insight behind you, you can mitigate liabilities and, if the event arises, control your response to a crisis with matchless professionalism and skill.

Meet Your Cybersecurity Lawyer

John J. Cooney is an accomplished data privacy attorney with far-reaching experience in the area of cybersecurity law. His longstanding career showcases this focus. As a former Partner at the leading firm Ruskin Moscou Faltischek, P.C., he created and chaired the Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Group. What’s more, before studying law, Mr. Cooney was trained as a software engineer. His technical background provides him with an extra edge over the competition, and John has successfully represented his clients in high-profile cases involving state and federal authorities.

Cybersecurity Preparedness

No modern-day company, regardless of its size, is immune to the threat of cyberattacks. By merely utilizing staple technologies, such as smartphones, Wi-Fi, and USB drives, you undertake responsibilities and risks day-to-day.

As a cybersecurity-focused General Counsel, I seek to engage with senior management teams to identify obligations and vulnerabilities, maintain compliance, and implement sound strategies to prevent data breaches. At my firm, cybersecurity preparedness encompasses:

  • Identification of data protection obligations

  • Development and regular updating of data breach policies

  • Assessment of data protection insurance coverage

  • Pre-emptive cyber incident response strategizing


Cybersecurity preparedness is a vital aspect of any organization’s in-house policies. To discuss your cyber-related legal matters and best practices, book a consultation today.

Cyber Incident Response Strategy

In the event of a cyberattack, I will work in conjunction with your in-house counsel or as an independent fractional GC to coordinate an effective response that maintains the integrity of your brand. A response strategy typically involves:

  • Counseling senior management and boards on internal and external corporate communications.

  • Liaising with relevant state and federal law enforcement agencies.

  • Representing clients in investigations by privacy commissioners and regulators.

  • Defending clients against litigation or class action proceedings.


In the wake of a security breach, reputation management is critical. As your General Counsel, I will see your organization through its cybersecurity crises unharmed and intact.
