Data Security and Privacy attorney Mark Melodia co-authored an article for the PLI Chronicle about the cyber threat landscape and how organizations will need to pivot moving forward to combat and handle cybersecurity incidents.

This article discusses what happens when data is accessed by an unauthorized party and how to appropriately respond to a cybersecurity incident.
