CLIENT SPOTLIGHT: Grillo's Pickles

If you haven't been to the Grillo's Pickles website, you should. There, you'll find the fantastic story of how this company began. We've copied part of it here to save you a click.

Grillo's Pickles began with a pickle cart, just a small wooden stand in downtown Boston, where Travis Grillo and his friends would sell two spears for one dollar. Travis would make the pickles by night using his family's 100-year old recipe - one he'd memorized from making pickles every summer as a kid. In the morning, Travis would bike to the Boston Common and set up the cart with his buddies. They'd hang out all day, urging people to try the simple Grillo family pickle. It was a small business but Travis worked hard for it. He made more pickles, biked more miles, and slept less hours than he ever had before.

CLIENT SPOTLIGHT: Luca + Danni

Fred and Danny Magnanimi grew up watching their father create beautiful, handcrafted jewelry in the family's Cranston, RI jewelry manufacturing business. When the boys grew up, Fred moved to New York and began working on Wall Street as an investment banker, while younger brother Danny, still enamored by the family business, stayed home. Increased competition from overseas businesses created significant challenges for the business, but Danny was confident he could find a way for the family business to evolve and thrive. This was his mission, this was his passion.

        Cyberliability & Data Security

        Cyberliability and Data Security Practice

        The cyberliability and data security attorneys at Partridge Snow & Hahn comprise a multi-disciplinary team with expertise in corporate law, employment law, intellectual property law, technology, privacy, risk management and litigation. We assist clients both in up-front counselling to mitigate risk, and in pursuing and defending litigation claims when disputes arise. We are especially useful in coordinating between different functional areas and identifying gaps in the company’s defenses.

        Some of the ways we assist clients are:
        • Advising with respect to compliance obligations under international, U.S. and state laws and regulations
        • Developing and reviewing policies and procedures for data privacy, protection, retention, and destruction
        • Reviewing and developing policies and procedures for the work place
        • Evaluating insurance policies and identifying gaps in coverage
        • Reviewing and negotiating Master Services Agreements and related software and technology agreements with third party vendors and cloud service providers
        • Advising with respect to the implementation of data breach response plans
        Would your company survive a cyber-attack?

        At Partridge Snow & Hahn, we have developed a cyber-readiness program based on the items below. The program is designed to identify organizational gaps and help clients implement policies, practices, and procedures that will help reduce the risk of cyber-attacks and create better preparedness to respond to incidents.

        The Challenge. Do you know what operational, HR, insurance, contractual and IT protections are in place to safeguard your business from a cyber-attack, or limit your exposure to losses from a cyber-breach? Who is looking at your entire business to tie everything together and identify gaps that could make you vulnerable?

        Attack on your entire company. A cyber breach is more than an inconvenience. In could disrupt everything, causing a public relations disaster, leading to serious reputational damage, a loss of customers, employee flight, loan defaults, and blacklisting by suppliers or customers. Your company could be the subject of lawsuits, which may or may not be covered by insurance, further diverting valuable time and resources.

        Economic cost. Recent studies have shown that the average cost of a data breach in 2018 for small and medium businesses is $120,000, and much more for larger companies. Could your company survive this unexpected expense? Is your insurance coverage adequate?

        Collateral damage. Damages from a cyber-attack are more than just direct financial losses, costs of investigation, and costs for remediation. After your company has performed a thorough investigation, state and Federal laws may require you to report the breach to government agencies and communicate with employees, customers, lenders, investors, and other 3rd parties. While your company’s cyber insurance policy may provide coverage for some of these costs, company personnel time is not included under such policies, and could be substantial.

        Cyber readiness requires everyone’s participation. Cyber compliance is an enterprise wide responsibility, is ongoing, and is not limited to your IT department. Less than one-half of all breaches are caused by malicious or criminal attacks. System glitches, human error and employee negligence cause the rest. As a result, your company’s officers and directors, as well as its leaders in IT, HR, operations, and finance, all need to be coordinated, and your employees need to be educated, in order for your company to be highly prepared.

        We can help you prepare. Partridge Snow & Hahn regularly advises companies who have suffered breaches, and has seen the high costs of investigation and remediation. We believe that spending time and resources on prevention and reducing risk is a better approach. Simply put, if you aren’t prepared, you are at risk.
