TAMPA — Amid heightened concerns about computer hackers' ability to infiltrate and compromise retailers' databases to political party computer systems, a Tampa law firm has established a cybersecurity practice.

Trenam Law's new practice is aimed at assisting clients in developing data breach prevention strategies and helping clients in the event of a breach.

John Goldsmith and Frank Santini will lead the firm's new practice, and it will coordinate efforts together with technical specialists, public relations firms and insurance providers, Trenam says in a release.

Cybersecurity joins health care, financial services, construction, hospitality and defense contracting as specialty practice areas within Trenam.

“While big name brands often dominate new headlines for their data breaches, small and mid-sized companies are just as vulnerable,” says Goldsmith.

Trenam's new practice also will counsel clients on disclosure, media relations and governmental notifications if a breach does occur.

Founded in 1970, Trenam is among the largest law firms in Florida, with offices in Tampa and St. Petersburg. The firm also helps clients in the areas of bankruptcy, business and real estate transactions, commercial litigation, and government contracting.
