Data Privacy for Regulated Industries

Our data privacy and security team has particular strength working with regulated industries, which face even closer scrutiny from authorities on the handling of consumer data. In insurance and healthcare in particular, storing and exchanging highly sensitive information is an inherent and necessary part of business functions, and is fraught with risk.  Our team of privacy experts works with entities throughout these regulated industries to develop data protection policies that comply with state and federal laws, reduce exposure to cyber threats, and to help you quickly respond and mitigate harm when the unimaginable happens.

Our Approach

Winthrop & Weinstine’s inter-disciplinary data privacy and security team stands ready to serve insurer and insurance business-related clients from every angle, including corporate governance, incident response preparation, incident response and regulatory engagement.  Our insurance regulatory and data privacy team works seamlessly with our clients to address data security proactively to account for the regulatory risk stemming from the expanded authority of the Minnesota Department of Commerce, other state departments of insurance, as well as other federal and state regulators.
