About Cybersecurity

Expanding Our Services

HeplerBroom LLC has announced the formation of its Cybersecurity, Data Breach & Privacy Protection Group (HBCyberGroup) to help organizations handle the volatile cyber threats, data security breaches, and data protection issues with which they are increasingly confronted. The experienced professionals in the HBCyberGroup work from HeplerBroom’s offices in St. Louis, Missouri, and Chicago, Springfield, and Edwardsville, Illinois.

“The HBCyberGroup has developed an innovative approach by developing industry relationships with leading secure data storage firms, security and forensic technology experts, public relations firms, insurance brokers, and insurance companies,” said Glenn Davis, a partner in HeplerBroom’s St. Louis office. “We combine their expertise with our experience to provide the right solution for each client’s specific situation. They no longer need to resort to exorbitantly priced, off-the-shelf, cookie-cutter remedies.”

“Our multi-disciplinary combination of the firm’s resources and complementary external resources provide business, corporate, and not-for-profit organizations a flexible, team approach that focuses on each client’s specific situation and needs,” said Jeffrey S. Hebrank, a partner active in management of the law firm’s technology.

“We know that no law firm can address today’s cyber threats alone,” Hebrank continued. “We constantly strive to stay ahead of emerging threats to our clients’ business interests and provide responsive and effective help. Our team approach with other leading service providers allows HeplerBroom to combine high quality, high value legal services with the complementary and effective technical, security, insurance, and public relations services that may be required to mitigate cybersecurity problems holistically.”

Whether an organization is in crisis and needs an effective incident response team with legal, forensic, and public relations expertise, or it’s calmly planning for defense mechanisms to ward off threats, the HBCyberGroup coordinates the right combination of talent and practical judgment to address these challenges with practical solutions. The Group’s alliance with leading information security forensic, data storage, reputation management, and insurance broker firms delivers value-oriented and practical solutions.
