The Cybereco family is growing with the arrival of Fasken as a new member. With over 750 lawyers and agents on four continents, Fasken is one of the largest business law firms in Canada. Cybereco is delighted of this partnership based on common values of sharing knowledge in cybersecurity.
Expertise in privacy and cybersecurity
With offices in Canada, in the United Kingdom, South Africa and China, Fasken works with clients around the world and advises them on legal issues that affect all types of industry, government and individual objectives. In addition to offering comprehensive legal services, Fasken has expertise in privacy and cybersecurity. A team of more than 35 lawyers works on issues related to privacy and data risks management.
Fasken helps its clients navigate new legislation, make it more accessible and mitigate risk in the areas of cybersecurity. Services are offered to start-up companies, young entrepreneurs needing effective advice on costs, the market they are targeting, and the cybersecurity needs of that market.
Sharing and learning from the ecosystem
Fasken and Cybereco are committed to sharing their knowledge with the community. Kateri-Anne Grenier, a partner in the Quebec City office, explains that “partnering with Cybereco was an obvious choice for Fasken: as major legal player in cybersecurity in Quebec and Canada, we are delighted to be part of this ecosystem of pioneers and leaders. We look forward to sharing our expertise and learning from other members to equip market players and position Canada as a leader in this field.”
For her colleague Vanessa Henri, a lawyer in the Montreal office, in addition to sharing expertise, this type of partnership should allow for better protection of our infrastructures in the future: “Whether it’s to maintain the trust inherent in the client-lawyer relationship, or to support the technological and economic development of Canadian businesses, cybersecurity is at the heart of our practices. Through Cybereco, we have the opportunity to join forces with other players in the ecosystem to combine our expertise in concrete initiatives aimed at ensuring the resilience of our infrastructures for future generations.”
