Wotton + Kearney today announced its partnership with Canopy, the leaders in AI-powered data mining and breach review software, to launch its Cyber Forensic Services.

Leveraging Canopy’s Data Breach Response software, W+K can now significantly reduce the time, cost, risk and effort associated with the defensible detection of sensitive data, thereby delivering faster and more accurate breach assessment and notification services to its clients.

“Our Cyber team has handled hundreds of cyber, privacy and data protection incidents and claims, including some of the largest and most complex incidents in Australia and other jurisdictions. We saw a real need to be able to more quickly assess the nature of breaches and help organizations meet non-negotiable notification deadlines,” said Kieran Doyle, Head of Cyber, Privacy and Tech Liability. “Canopy’s emerging technology has quickly developed an outstanding global reputation for partnering with incident response specialists to do just that. We are excited to be the first law firm in the region to partner with Canopy and to offer this AI-driven technology solution to our clients.”

“The new Cyber Forensic Service is a prime example of how W+K is driving value for their clients,” said Ralph Nickl, CEO and Founder at Canopy. “Protecting people’s data is a global challenge that affects everyone. We’re thrilled to combine W+K’s legal expertise with our AI-powered software so they can help organizations achieve regulatory compliance and preserve their reputations in the event of a breach.”

W+K’s market-recognized experts have a deep understanding of the regulatory framework surrounding protected data in Australia, New Zealand and other jurisdictions across the globe. By engaging W+K to deliver a cyber forensic solution, organizations will maintain legal professional privilege, which is critical in reducing exposures if action is taken later.


About Wotton + Kearney’s Cyber team
W+K has market-recognised specialists in the areas of cyber and IT risk. The firm also offers cyber forensic services and advises on proactively managing privacy and technology liability risks.

We work for the full spectrum of insurance industry participants, including local and international insurers, volume SMEs, large corporates, Lloyd’s market coverholders, underwriters and participants with industry specific facilities. As the occurrence of incidents and data breaches increase, so do insurers’ concerns over the growing cost associated with assessing them. Our Cyber Forensic Services leverage AI and machine learning to make data mining incredibly more efficient than traditional regular expressions or pattern matching, thereby reducing the overall time and cost of breach response and notification.

Our cyber experience spans industries including accountancy, recruitment, construction, manufacturing, education, financial services, not-for-profit, technology and IT services, health, professional services, health and retail.
