BakerHostetler named ALM Intelligence Pacesetter in Cybersecurity Services

New research from ALM recognizes professional services providers delivering client impact in today’s dynamic business environment

New York, NY – November 19, 2020 – Am Law 100 firm BakerHostetler has been named an ALM Intelligence Pacesetter in the inaugural ALM Intelligence Pacesetter Research: Cybersecurity Services 2020 assessment of leading providers in this market. ALM Intelligence, the research and data arm of ALM Media, LLC, offers a unique perspective in this new research series by exploring the dynamics of convergence in professional services. In addition, Pacesetter Research evaluates how providers across insurance, law, management consulting, and other segments are evolving to serve clients. BakerHostetler is the only law firm among the 18 providers covered to achieve Pacesetter status in cybersecurity services.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has lit a fire under organizations to accelerate their shift to a digital business model,” said ALM Intelligence Pacesetter Research Lead Analyst Liz DeVito. “Cybersecurity is a top priority as companies move their employees, products, and services online. However, they need to balance this urgent business priority with a proven approach to securing data. BakerHostetler delivers on this need with an integrated service delivery model that combines deep capabilities in the business and legal matters of data privacy.”

ALM Intelligence cited BakerHostetler for the strength and integrity of its incident response services and annual Data Security Incident Response Report, which is widely considered the hallmark study of data breach litigation and cybersecurity strategies. Additional differentiators include its partnership with well-regarded technology vendors; IncuBaker, the research and development team that advances BakerHostetler’s innovation agenda; and strong relationships with the board and c-suite executives, General Counsels, CIOs, and CISOs.

“I am proud of our DADM Group’s recognition as the only Pacesetter firm for cybersecurity by ALM,” said Paul Schmidt, chairman of BakerHostetler. “Ted and his group are on track to work on more than 1,700 data security incidents in 2020 which is remarkable.
